This would make you an "early adopter." I haven't been able to solve all the issues translating from Org-mode to LaTeX yet, but I recently completed a conference paper without using babel code blocks and it looks fine. Of course, the paper doesn't have abbreviations that end with dots ...
Yes, and the overhead does get in the way, at least for my writing projects. Literate programming of prose, which is essentially what LaTeX code blocks in babel yield, is a bit different than LP for a software project. In my experience, prose blocks don't require as much explanation as source code often does, so some of the rationale for literate programming isn't applicable, and it is very difficult, at least for me, to stitch together good prose if isn't organized linearly. A typical paragraph isn't as independent as a well-written function. I haven't figured out how to write a generic segue.
On the other hand, I think it is the only way currently to get from Org-mode to perfect LaTeX.
If you figure this one out, please share. I've been over-using the extensible link syntax. It is great, no doubt about it, but after a while it feels like I'm working for Org-mode rather than the other way round.
All the best,
