Yes, that's a valid reason for sure!  I have the opposite in that I use
my phone to access my office desktop but I suffer from the same problem:
on my phone there is no (easy?) way to send, for instance, M-S-<down>
(=org-shiftmetadown=) which I need to insert a new row in a table.  Not
the easiest command to type directly unfortunately.

One of the options to access commands that are bound to keys you cannot
use easily is to invoke the emacs menu.  You can access the menu even in
screen mode through M-` (tmm-menubar).  So, for instance, to insert a row in the
table, you can type "ESC ` T r i".  Although I don't actually have the
menu bar shown ever, org has an excellent menu structure which seems to
provide access to all the important commands!  Mind you, on my phone,
accessing backtick is non-trivial, but that's another story. ;-)
