The latter. We currently need a new syntax element that will allow all
the things available in Texinfo markup syntax.

We have decided that we do need such new syntax. We are discussing how
the new syntax will look like. We will implement the syntax in future.
Once implemented, the new syntax will open the road to add Texinfo
markup structures into Org export backends.
