You might be interested in the widget.el library (it has its own info
docs).  Not the easiest to use, but quite powerful.

Another approach would be to write a major mode with suitable bindings,
probably derived from special-mode.  I suspect this is what mu4e does.

A lightweight approach would be a hydra.  Coincidentally, I blogged
about my Org-mode-related hydra a few days ago:

I might need a similar thing (a menu-driven application on top of
Emacs), so I might be tempted to write a blog post about such a thing.
Would you be interested?

I'm wondering what Org-mode features are you going to interfce to this
