As far is I see it, the intended behavior of
org-insert-heading-respect-content with point before the first heading
is to

- insert the new heading immediately before the first heading.  Respect
  the content!

- If there is no heading at all in the file the heading shall be
  inserted at the bottom of the file.

Do we agree on the desired behavior of
org-insert-heading-respect-content?

With your proposition the respect for the content gets lost, doesn't it?


Ciao!
