You have my +100500 to have this package as part of Org :D The package may allow several interesting things in Org: 1. An alternative way to structure headings Currently, we have a rigid headline structures in Org and alternative tag-based approaches like Org Roam. Headline transclusion will allow same subtree under several headings (aka file system symlinks). 2. A much faster tangle system. If we can directly transclude and sync contents of source blocks with actual programming language buffer, C-c ' can trivially support flycheck-mode and provide a more IDE-like experience while still benefiting from literate programming style. 3. Visible #+INCLUDE directives. I recall multiple requests to be able to see the INCLUDEd files right inside source Org buffer. 4. Dynamic Org files like agenda views, but made of transcuded headlines. Such files can be kept in Org mode with all its features. Transculation has been requested many times by different users.
