Just for your amusement: I've developed a very different but effective 
way of taking minutes with org-mode that uses just lists and 
enumerations. I have been using this solution for more than a year on a 
daily basis and I'm really happy with it (and colleagues don't 
complain). Speed, simplicity and readability for non-emacsers is 
critical in my job, so the solutions you are proposing would be overkill.

You can have a look at the style and code here:


Any feedback is greatly appreciated. But keep in mind that the code is 
not polished at all -- this is a hobby project of an elisp dilettante.
