No problem, we all start somewhere :) (and I know I'm still making mistakes)

An update to the manual to describe the changed behaviour would be good.
If you'd like you could wait till a core maintainer says this looks good
before going to that effort, or you could add it in now so it's all in a
single patch --- as long as something happens.

I don't think LaTeX support is likely to leave Org any time soon, so at
least until a core maintainer tells you otherwise I'd be inclined to
proceed with your current patch.

If this was a huge/transformational change I may be more uncertain, but
this looks fairly simple to me at least.
