For example : 

  * A new project

  Here is some content describing the expected process for a project.
  Then i want to list some preliminary scheduled tasks to organize a
  few things :

  **: SOMEDAY Build a website
  **: NEXT Set up a discussion list
  Then i continue describing the project.  My point is that this very
  three lines of content are not related to the headline "Set up a
  discussion list", but to the headline "A new project".

For now, i use list items like this :

  - [ ] Build a website
  - [ ] Set up a discussion list

But i can't add tags, schedule or archive them, etc., as you do with
other kinds of (headlined) tasks.  Does this describtion make more
sense for you ?


I'm aware this might first be confusing for the user, because this is
not the general approach of org-mode.  And i'm also aware this might
be a very specific need.  But i like org-mode for its flexibility and
this was just a suggestion concerning "unfoldable" headline (while we
were at it).

Hope that makes more sens now :)
