Maybe this scenario helps?

- start out with an Org mode text tree
- M-X inkmacs-edit This binds the tree to an Inkscape instance
- C-M-x will copy the Org mode text tree to Inkscape and bind each node
to an Inkscape text node. The default layout will be ugly
- Drag around the text nodes as you please and add graphics
- Edit the Org mode text tree and update the text nodes in Inkscape
again with C-M-x

I use this for things like mindmaps.

There are more possibilities but the above scenario should give a hint
