Hi Simon,

Nicolas Goaziou has been working recently on a new emacs-lisp parser of
Org-mode files, with the goals of
1. standardizing the formal syntax of Org-mode files
2. parsing Org-mode files to a canonical emacs-lisp list-based
   representation in memory (like an Org-mode AST)
3. re-basing the existing Org-mode exporters off of this canonical

This work is contained in contrib/lisp/org-element.el, which includes a
large amount of useful commentary at the top of the file.  This should
serve as a starting point for learning more about the formal syntax of
Org-mode files (as it is defined).  I think that developing parsers for
this syntax in multiple language should be very useful to ensure that a
usable syntax is developed separate from any particular implementation.
