No I wasn't. I was referring to Juri Linkov's idea of providing a minor
mode to disable every single Org specific binding.

It will break some workflows (mine, at least), undoubtedly, but it is
a step forward anyway. Org is a part of Emacs, there's no reason for the
former to follow a different path than the latter. Besides, undoing the
change is easy enough, since you only need to disable Electric Indent

The change will not appear overnight in Org, i.e., not in Org stable's
branch (Org 9.3.X), and it will be announced in ORG-NEWS. I do think it
is a very welcome change. Thank you.

I cleaned a bit Cc header and added Org mode list for further comments.
