I don't think users should call M-x prettify-symbols-mode. Instead, they
could call `org-art-prettify-buffer', an autoloaded function, which
would properly initialize `prettify-symbols-mode' and so on. What
mechanism is behind prettification is not important.

BTW, we could have a defcustom listings all eye candy
`org-art-prettify-buffer' -- or simply `org-prettify-buffer' if the
library is called "org-prettify" -- could do (e.g., headlines,

Of course. But Org users may want to control what symbol is used.
Anyway, I don't have a strong opinion about it.

Actually, I was mistaken: this is a function, not a variable. So, it
should be more like:

  Return non-nil when symbol between START and END is to be prettified.
