I am thinking of using org-mode to compile a small database. I would like
to use properties to add data, and some restrictions of this kind to limit
what properties a particular kind of headline could have.

It might seem like an over-kill, but then for org-mode, almost nothing is
an over-kill.

I am missing a few nuts and bolts, but would really like to see how it
works to use org-mode for a small org-mode-skilled team to use it as a data

Warmest greetings and regards,
