Looks useful, thanks!  

I'll let this discussion grow a bit until we have something we can
perhaps include in Org.

Also, counting words from Emacs is a frequent request from users.  If
your solution for Org could be integrated into a more general solution
for Emacs (working on various modes), that would be a win.  See:

.. and other pointers.
