Yes! Yes! Yes!

I can see all sorts of stuff going from here.  Three examples follow.

1. I have a daily journal in Org-mode, and I wrote a simple function
showing me "what happened on this day in all previous years of
journaling".  Making that read-only, with view-mode-like bindings is an
obvious thing to do.  (In fact, I plan to blog about that function

2. I imagine this could be used to create menus, a bit like Magit, with
toggleable sections etc.

3. I once coded myself a kind of "dashboard", showing various things in
(almost) real time - think current time, weather, departures of busses
from a nearby bus stop, Emacs uptime, number of open buffers, a todo
list for today etc.  (Sadly, I didn't finish it, though.)  A mode
derived from your mode could be great for that.

Thanks a lot for working on this,

Marcin Borkowski
