Hi Shankar,

Detailed comments are up for Kyle, or someone more qualified than 
myself, but I leave one further comment regarding the suggestion I had 
made.

You have a good point here.  When I made the suggestion I was naively 
thinking the featured could be plugged/hooked somewhere in Org, when 
fontification is done.  But that's not really true, as the feature 
requires being run every time the point moves too.  So, as far as I can 
tell, it seems using post-command-hook is unavoidable, and if so, you 
are right in not wanting to add some load to it for everyone, regardless 
of whether they want this feature or not.  You and Kyle have me 
convinced here.

And thanks again!

Best,
Gustavo.
