I will too. But i think this solution is suboptimal: i already have a
.el file to store my org-specific configuration, and this obligues me to
split my configuration into two files, the only reason being that i
don't want org to overwrite my customisation variables. 

I'm not privy with the implementation details, but i guess the overwrite
is unavoidable when not using the additional file? I'm a bit surprised
by this fact: i use dozens of emacs packages, and org is the first one
wanting to modify my custom.el; even in cases where customising a
variable must trigger some additional side-effect, there's some function
one can call in the init file to both set the variable and trigger the
additional side-effects.

That said, if this is the only workable solution, so be it :)

A student came to the master and asked, for the master was one of them
who knew such things: "Does Emacs have the Buddha nature?" The master
contemplated this for some time, and answered: "I don't see why not,
it has about everything else."
