Proper integration of doct into org-capture.el would indeed be ideal. I
am happy that you are ok with such option.

Practically, we can do it step-by-step in separate patches:
1. Introduce alist format for org-capture-templates. No new
   functionality yet, just change the existing supported template
   options to :keyword value pairs. Also, make sure that we keep
   backwards compatibility.
2. Extend the alist with new options, like ${keyword} expansion, hooks,
   contexts, children, etc Maybe in a sequence of patches.
3. Provide validation of capture templates.



I'll just say that I would be an enthusiastic adopter of the new syntax (just one data point). I agree wholeheartedly that named properties in plists are much easier to remember and adjust than positional arguments, especially when there are lots of the latter.   So, I hope this move sforward.
