Have you tried M-S-<right> on the heading to be demoted? Or from the Org
menu, Edit Structure/Demote Subtree? Eventually, you get the key combo into
your fingers and then it's quicker than "collapse, demote, uncollapse"
would be, although I admit that your idea has a certain elegance -
the fly in the ointment is how hard it would be to implement and that
I am in no position to evaluate.
