Precisely org-mode shines on structured, long-form documents. There are
several books written on org-mode, plus entire web sites.

RMS knows very little about org-mode, as he admitted on the past.

Org-mode is *far* more convenient and powerful than asciidoc. Consider
org-babel, for instance, that allows embedding code on the document on a
way that you can execute it and incorporate the output into the
document. That looks great for interactive manuals such as tutorials,
doesn't it?
