I guess you misunderstood me: my idea is not about single-shot entering
of data into new notes. My idea is about a completely different view of
existing note subtrees. e.g. the link in my previous message, or Evernote.

For a long time I've been thinking of some kind of Evernote/Zim
hybrid, one that could display and tag notes separately, but display
more than one "note" in the right-pane, rather than a single large
page. I just discovered this:
I'm sure it's nowhere near Zim now, but the UI is very close to what
I've been imagining. It would be great if Zim could display a subtree
of notes in the right pane, instead of just a single note. Then it
could have a dedicated tag strip, dedicated date field, dedicated
title field, stars or flags, etc. Or, if a single note was displayed,
it could look like it does now.
This would make tagging so much more useful. It would also let notes
be organized in a more detailed way, like Evernote.
I'd start coding this myself, but I know very little about Python and
Gtk. So this message is just my throwing the idea out there to see
how it's received by the Zim crowd. I know there are plenty of
wishlist bugs already. I'm interested to hear your thoughts!
Have you tried Zim's Quick Note plugin?
Edit -> Preferences -> Plugins
With the Quick Note plugin you can open a quick note from the Zim
system tray icon.
