Alright, but no need for desperation. There is a way forward.

Make your own package, see (info "(elisp) Packaging")

As when you make your own package you are extending Emacs.

Then apply the package to be included in GNU ELPA:
https://elpa.gnu.org on emacs-devel@gnu.org mailing list.

That way you are contributing to GNU Emacs.

Your package can improve some functions and thus get kudos from other
users.

Then it becomes so much easier to point out to your improvements and
propose them to mainstream Emacs or Org mode.
