That is neat, but not quite what I had in mind.

I have a roster of headlines, one for each student in a course. The file
is tagged with #+FILETAGS: course_name

During a semester, students drop, and I have tried a few different
models to designate that, e.g. move the headline to an archived
headline, or tagging them as :dropped:. 

I use this file like a database to generate lists of students, emails,
etc... but I want to exclude dropped students from that list. 

I can use this as a "query" to org-map-entries


but it seems like the best idea is to just archive the headline to
another file or delete the headline.
