In outline mode there is the possibility to replace the stars with an 
reg-expression.  That means you can replace the star as the 
headline-indicator.  Maybe you can take some code from outline-mode.

maybe you can rise the importance of org-tags-column like in "if a ":" 
is here, than this is a tag.

Aside from that...

What is the basic design model for org-mode?  What is org supposed to 
be?  Where it is headed? I thought I  got an outliner with 
dates-capabilities.  No it's almost a full fledged publishing platform...

I think you did a terrific job so far.  Maybe you have to make some 
fundamental decisions here...
