This kind of functions take different actions depending on the context.
So picking up more readable names for them is tricky.

See the docstring of `org-metaleft':

,----[ (org-metaleft &optional arg) ]
| Promote heading or move table column to left.
| Calls `org-do-promote' or `org-table-move-column', depending on context.
| With no specific context, calls the Emacs default `backward-word'.
| See the individual commands for more information.
`----

I cannot think of a better name.  What would you propose?
