Will do.

I didn't realized that's how autoloads work. So they're "just in time"
loads? Designed to cut back on the initial load time?

That's helpful. Part of my confusion was that some of those packages,
like protocol, crypt, and id, are available through the customize
interface (my preferred method of dealing with org-mode setup), but
org-latex was not listed (nor org-install, but that seems reasonable
to me).
