I'm late to this discussion, but just a lateral thought:

Would you consider rewriting this as `org-demarcate-block' or similar, to operate on all #+begin_...end blocks, not just src?

If generalized this function could be equally useful for non-src blocks as well. Example blocks come immediately to mind, but there are non-coding applications too.

For instance, I store many notes with quotes from various texts, sometimes in fairly long =#+begin_quote= blocks, which I then need to split up when I want to write an extended discussion of a passage, quoting a few lines at a time.

For those who use verse blocks (I all too seldom have the need...), it may be even more useful.

For personal use, I already have a little org-insert-block utility function to insert/wrap [q]uote, [s]rc, e[x]ample, [v]erse or [o]ther blocks at a keystroke. This works for me since I use at least the first two more or less equally often. A generalized demarcate-block function would be a nice complement.


I've just added this to the org-mode repo.

Not in the babel key map - in the org key map (I use it most in normal
non src org entries to mark a block of elisp as src for samples/examples).

For now it still lives in the babel keymap behind (C-c C-v d) since it
is fundamentally code-block related,

For me, "fundamentally code-block related", in the absence of
execution-related functionality, points to org-src.el rather than
org-babel, so I suggest naming this function
org-src-demarcate-block. The babel keymap is still a good place for a
binding -- I think it's reasonable for the babel keymap to accomodate
pure code block stuff in addition to execution/tangling stuff.
