 I've been watching this thread closely.  At this point I want to jump in.
I like the ideas that have been posted here so far, about a different way of
organizing remember in org.  I'm not completely certain, but it seems that
part of what was asked for earlier is included in org-remember already, when
the template posts to the file directly, bypassing the remember buffer
altogether.  I don't remember why this was unfavorable to me, but in many
ways it is useful.  Many of the ideas of the OP and others about the use of
tags, etc., would be more than useful.

Another point, although somewhat off topic, draws my attention:

I agree with this, but I'm not sure how I would want it implemented.

I am currently using a file I have called "general.org" with links to
various projects.  Following an idea from Sacha Chua, the following is in
the init file:

   :(defun general ()
   :  (interactive)
   :  (find-file "~/org/General.org"))

I use it to store links to various projects.  It has often occurred to me
how handy it would be if this were integrated better with org-mode.  I would
like to be able to start defining a project, with a command that did the
following (at least):

   1.  interactively ask for a project name and make an org file or
directory (optionally)
   2.  insert a link either in some list like general.org
   3.  define (perhaps suggesting a default) key binding
   4.  perhaps setting up logging or other automatic processes (clocking?)

For now, however, general.org in my setup solves my problem.  One more
reason I like having my ~/org hierarchy under git control on three machines.
