Let me ask the question differently: as all reasonable key bindings are
taken (a statement to which I tend to agree), is the suggestion of
interactive functions to be added to the core of org-mode no longer
appropriate? I.e. should I contribute them to Worg (with which I still need
to familiarise myself) rather than suggesting them here? Or, asking about a
middle course, what's the role of org's "contrib" directory? (Is it even
suitable for something that is not a complete plugin of its own right, but
rather just a single function?)

Sorry, this was unfortunate in my initial post. I didn't intend to
hard-code this as the "default" key binding, but it was rather meant to be
read as "if you like this function, you could bind it, for example, to ...".

Thanks - makes sense. However probably not if I write a tutorial in the
style of "if you want to do <something>, then copy the following lines to
your. emacs".

But I think I should rather aim at Worg's "contrib" directory, with a short
elisp file containing my function, plus a short HTML file explaining that
there exists an elisp file containing a function that does <a few words
about the functionality> - does this make sense?

Cheers, and thanks for your advice,
