I don't think it belongs to "org-entities.el" either. While it is true
there is some prettification done there, this is not the sole point of
the library. IOW, it is more than eye-candy; it affects, e.g., export.

I really think it should go into a new "org-art.el" file.

More comments follow.

Should this be a defcustom?

Also, note that the name space must match library, so if it goes into
"org-art.el", it ought to be named, e.g., `org-art-prettify-alist'.

MATCH is ..."

Doesn't this mean that any bold object in headline is going to be

Maybe something like this (untested):

  (and (org-match-line org-outline-regexp-bol)
       (< end (match-end 0)))

  ";; Else rely on the default function."

  ";; Setup prettify mode."

This should also go into "org-art.el", which is an optional library. We
don't want to activate anything related to it every time Org is loaded.

Can it be tested somehow?
