In org-mode the functions that are bound to some keys are named after
the key binding, for example:

  <M-left>        org-metaleft

It might be helpful when developing, but it is not very helpful to the
user. It would be nice of the name of those commands where changed to
something with a different mnemonic (ie what the command does).

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?

It does not have to be short. It should rather be descriptive IMO.
