The main reason of course is to filter out the dross from pages of tasks
and notes.

Something like a property on #include which specifies the tag to INCLUDE
in the export.


#+import "~/orgfiles/tasks.org" includetag:export-web recursive:no

or somesuch.

Maybe simpler are properties on the top of a org file of the form

#+export-tag: export-web

Since #import currently does not check for a timestamp it tends not to
get republished unless the parent file is changed. So a top property
might be better so any "lists" imported from ones tasks is really a link
click away (normal org link).

I dont know how practical these ideas are but maybe they can start the
ball rolling or prompt someone to suggest an existing method? Having to
manually open a tree portion and exporting it isnt really practical when using
project publishing.
