The idea of a generic exporter sounds very cool. Especially if it
could still make use of the very refined set of options org mode has
to include and prune subtrees, to include or exclude keywords,
timestamps, and tags.  I wonder if it could be made also to work with
something like the Pandoc extensions to Markdown
[http://johnmacfarlane.net/pandoc/], which would then allow further
export into the range of formats Pandoc supports (markdown,
reStructuredText, HTML, ConTeXt, RTF, DocBook XML, OpenDocument XML,
ODT, GNU Texinfo, MediaWiki markup, groff man pages, and S5 HTML slide
shows).  Of course, such flexibility probably doesn't come without
it's struggles, but the ability to throw an org document in and get
and ODF would have significant benefit.

I'll have to think about how far a generic substitution-based exporter
could get at such a conversion....
