How about if you do this exercise and walk us through the results?
Visit an Org file, type "C-h b", then show us the list, and tell which
bindings you think are "basic" and which are "advanced", and why you
think so.

I can tell you what I see with my very simple 1570-line Org file,
which just has some todo items organized in 4-level hierarchy:

  . ~100 keys that look "general Org" to me
  . ~30 keys that Org remaps to its s own commands, like 'yank' and
  . ~40 keys bound to org-babel-SOMETHING -- no idea why these are
    bound by default, but they are there
  . ~60 more keys that I'm not sure whether they are "basic" or not,
    but they are all bound by default, just because I visited an Org

So "just" 230 key bindings.  And this is without any minor/add-on Org
mode/feature enabled, at least according to "C-h m".

Do you see something different?  Are you still saying that it's not a
lot, or that it's "based on ignorance and paranoia"?  If so, please
point out where I'm ignorant and/or paranoiac, because I'd really like
to know.
