This is complex layout, something that DTP programs (InDesign, Quark, Scribus) do very well as they work on the concept of multiple threads of connected text boxes. [offtopic: in LaTeX there is an attempt to emulate that with the flowfram package, with obvious limitations. And the Sile typesetting system is very interesting and promising, which tries to combine the WYSIWYM style of TeX and the linked text boxes of DTP programs: https://sile-typesetter.org/]. But --- returning to the topic---, even so, there is always an underlying notion of hierarchy, levels and dependency, which is what I was referring to: there is a skeleton. I think that Org's system of trees and nodes, agnostic of any typographic format, is enough to maintain that hierarchy. In fact, I have some works with a very complex output starting simply from Org (right now I'm with a trilingual edition, using flowfram: for example, certain Org nodes are exported as flowfram boxes). Obviously, that can also be done from XML (an example of a combination of xml and LuaTeX: https://www.speedata.de/en/). But I think, perhaps in a somewhat quixotic way, that Org has tremendous potential and can play very well in that league. XML is more accurate; but Org is a great compendium of resources.
