not to be That Guy, but: all those things listed under each bullet are very nearly just org-mode documentation chapter titles.

Org is very clearly Just Plain Text, but there is a nontrivial caveat, which is "... backed by LISP, so text is also data is also code is also text". Most of the real goodies (babel, refile, capture) will not (ever, probably) work outside of emacs.

I agree that plain text is rad, though!

Furthermore, the templates provided are basically proto-org-mode syntax probably re-invented by someone who has never seen org-mode in the first place.

To me, that speaks to how natural much of (but certainly not all of) org-mode syntax is.
