Hello,

It is a line break in any export back-end.

That's a reasonable syntax extension, maybe too English-centered. Maybe
a more abstract [@!] would be better.

Notes are not necessary stuffed into a LOGBOOK drawer, or even into
a drawer at all. Besides, LOGBOOK is a common word, and it is not
unreasonable to think some user could have used it for other purposes.

Old notes are going to be incompatible (as in ignored by any tool
processing notes, not invalid markup) with the new ones. I don't think
there's a way to eschew it. It doesn't seem to be a big deal, however,
as you don't lose anything by keeping notes in old syntax around.
