you can create an outline now by doing file→export to local disk→text (or html). the text export creates a tab separated outline, which you can load easily in excel. the html outline creates a doc that you can load in a browser or with word/similar text editors.

Please add this. It is fundamentally simple, but it should be supported by a user-settable ranking attribute (to determine the order in which items are listed). For any node, children should be listed according to a lexicographic sort, sorting first on the user-settable ranking, and then on the creation time. (Ties resolved by stable sorting.) In the outline view, users should be able to re-rank items simply by pulling them higher or lower in their list.
