The blog post and video look great for management of projects, tasks and contexts. The other critical component is the efficient management of project data in association with projects and tasks. The implementation of notes and links is crucial for this. For example, notes need to be available at both the task and the project level (not just task only). Notes should be able to support list styles (or--better yet--their own outlines). Notes text style and color should be settable as a preference. It would be beneficial if notes could be opened in a separate window, or if the separate pane view from OmniOutliner could be expanded easily to full height. Notes should accept dragged file references, folder references and URLs that all directly open with a click (I assume this will be the case, similar to OmniOutliner). You should be able to generate tasks or subprojects easily from notes that have been made previously at the project level.
Alternatively, some of the more demanding notes functionality might be delegated to OmniOutliner if there was a way to rapidly create an OmniOutliner document and link it to a project or task while working in those views in OmniFocus. This would need to be done in a way that would allow the document to be opened quickly from OmniFocus with minimal friction. Going the other way, a topic in OmniOutliner might be draggable to create a project, subproject or task in OmniFocus.
