That single sentence really answers the question pretty effectively! The
whole explanation does make perfect sense, though.

I admit that the entire structure of the work-flow is not something I
really understand - it seems to have developed over time in response to
changing situations, and therefore has elements that one might not
choose if one were starting from scratch.

Sigh! Isn't that always the case? :-(.

But (just throwing an additional idea out there) - the possibility of
having a considerable apparatus for yourself in Org-mode, and your final
step before sending to the editor being "export to plain text". (so that
your editor has bare plain text with no markup of any kind.)

My real problem is that I don't know how to generate the multiple indexes that I need if I use org mode. Everything else is easy. Any potential solution that I see involves adding lots more markup, but if I do that I might as well stick with LaTeX.

At least a lot of simple editors (the software) are LaTeX aware, so my editor (the human being) should be able to handle it.

Thanks again for your thoughts.
