I disagree. Note that I'm not crying out loud, either.

Textmarker-Experience is but a fancy way to emphasize some text. It
typographically has the same purpose as *bold*, /italic/, _underscore_,

You can already tweak `org-emphasis-alist' to put, e.g., neon-yellow
over bold (or italic, underscole...) text if you want. Just change the
face associated to the marker.

The point is that Org is, by default, limited to a set of 4 markers (I'm
not counting the 2 verbatim markups), for good reasons. I still think
this is enough for most purposes. If you have special requirements,
e.g., 6 markers, both Org and Emacs provide other ways to add them. None
of them should be achieved by tweaking `org-emphasis-alist', though.
