I think you're mixing src blocks and Babel. A src block contains,
fontifies and allows to edit source code. Babel arguments (or caption,
or name) are meta-data that applies to the whole src block element, not
to its contents.

Affiliated keywords all do. If one doesn't, it's a bug.

That's another topic, and I agree that, at one point or another, we'll
have to unify the way parameters are written. IMO, Babel usage is a good

But Org elements does. Affiliated keywords must be attached to their
relative element.

Then it's a duck.

You may want to read comments in org-element.el. I also posted some
explanations when I announced the library.

I just wanted to let you know that the idea of putting "quasi-drawers"
within a src-block is against the model described by the current parser.
