Could it be done via a secondary parser?  That is, define a base level
language for Org that fits into a BNF (or..?) grammar and then a package
that could be a pre-hook to the parser that rewrites improper tidbits
into a grammatically correct form?  I'm thinking, if the grammar is well
defined, the secondary parser won't be that complex.
