It would not change anything for the HTML author, since \hfill{} would
be exported as-is in any exporter. Though, it would be a less convenient
for the LaTeX author, who would have to type @@latex:\hfill{}@@.

On the other hand, I see at lest 3 reasons to remove support for such

- consistency :: it's not possible to write raw HTML in an Org buffer,
                 nor raw Texinfo. LaTeX shouldn't be treated

- clarity :: Recently, an user expected the \cite{} command to work in
             a backend different from LaTeX.

- ecumenism :: Removing LaTeXisms will make Org documents easier to
               export to various back-ends.
