That's exactly the problem: Org mode's purpose is not conceptually

If it were separated into different facilities, each one with a simple
purpose, and _each facility documented separately_, this particular
problem would be gone.

If they were different facilities, each facility with a simple purpose
and each documented separately, they could still work together, so you
would still have all these facilities available for a certain file
when that's what you want.

We wouldn't think of that as an "Org file".  We would think of it as
a file in which you are using features A, B and C together.
