Just curious: what would be the advantage of tagging a region of text
rather than creating subheadings?


--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
* item1
** this is about item 1 
about item one
** bla bla                      :urgent:
More bla bla
** More about item1
more about item1
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

Since org mode relies on the hierarchical structure of outlines, all of
the subheadings are part of the tree beginning with item1.

Also, how would a region of tagged text appear in the agenda? The agenda
depends on the association of metadata with headlines.
