Hello, John, 

Thank you very much for the two links.

Your idea of adding attributes to Org links is very interesting and
productive. It also shows the great potential that Org links have.

I also find your approach very interesting. What I like the most is
giving LaTeX a "Lisp skin". It is more elegant and legible. I love
(La)TeX and its potential, but I find its code somewhat ugly, often too
verbose. By the way (offtopic), there is a LaTeX package called
lisp-on-TeX that includes a rudimentary Lisp interpreter:
https://www.ctan.org/pkg/lisp-on-tex. It's interesting, and you can do
some things with it, but I think it's an abandoned project. The TeX
ecosystem has moved to Lua with LuaTeX and LuaMetaTeX, but a LispTeX
would have been wonderful! ;-)
