I use properties for projects.
Depending on your numbers of concurrent projects, you may want to
consider separate files for each project. (IMHO less elegant for a large
number of little projects, but nice for say up to ten).

I'd add a '* Inbox' Headline at the end of the relevant files, i.e. 
perso.org, research.org etc. No separate scratch file, no w/pinbox.org.

Both options seem viable.

Once, I had a tag NET for things I needed to do while online. 
I then figured out I was online almost everywhere I actually worked, so
I don't use it anymore.
