This is much clearer to me, for one, and I see how the need can
arise.  But it appears somewhat redundant in that you could always
re-organize your file to achieve the same effect (at the cost of a
deeper hierarchy).  For example:

* A new project
** Expected process
   Here is some content, etc.
*** SOMEDAY Build a website
*** NEXT Set up a discussion list
** Additional details
   Then continue describing the project.
