With org-narrow-to-block you have to pay attention to the boundaries of
the block, but indeed it goes most of the way.  Of course it’s trivial to
fix that.

The nice part would be to be able to edit the content of the block in a
different buffer.  It’s good for dumping passages and doing further
editing (e.g. and emphases).

I’m not sure I see how that’s relevant in this case, but I could easily be
overlooking some detail.
