To me neither.

I like it, and have a patch to integrate this directly in org-metaup and

There is one problem though: when you try to move down a paragraph when
it is followed by a list, Emacs doesn't understand the list should be
treated as a paragraph.  

Any idea on how to circumvent this?  Or should we live with this and
implement the solution?

Thanks for this idea,
