I've rarely found describe mode to be terribly useful (there are exceptions). However, I have used modes which have bound a help key to a section in the info manual and I've found that much more useful. The depth of information is usually better (what people looking for help probably want) and once your in the info pages, moving to cross references and other possibly relevant sections is very easy. I also think adding transient mode would be beneficial in a number of areas of org. In addition to reducing code maintenance, it would increase consistency with other Emacs modes etc. -- Tim Cross
