I don't have a horse in this race, but I will note that I call Org
commands with M-x /all the time/.  There's just so much functionality
that even when keybindings exist I may not know them.  And of course I
don't use the menu because that would require reaching for the mouse ;)

For anyone else in this situation, I can't recommend strongly enough the
package smex.el (I get it from http://github.com/nonsequitur/smex/, but
it's also in the Emacs Lisp Package Archive).  It offers ido-like
completion for function names.  For me, this makes the entire emacs
environment, but Org especially, much more discoverable via the M-x
