Ragel http://www.complang.org/ragel/ is a tool that integrates regular
expressions and state machines under one umbrella.
It has backends currently for C, C++, Objective-C, D, Java and Ruby.  I do
not think having an elisp backend would be a very big task.

After that (in my estimate) org-mode code would (could) become half as long
and twice as fast -- at least those sections that are heavily regex oriented
