My initial hunch would be a combination of directives as you describe, and 
preserving the line boundaries of any text lines entered with leading 
whitespace (in the case where flowed is the default).

Any text files attached or inlined by directive would be format-preserved by 
default.  Whether to flow user-entered text would be a preference setting.  
That default would have to remain non-flowed so as not to break
existing external software that uses comp and friends.

I will try to get in a bit of time reviewing the code to see how this might 
work, but no promises.
