One argument against hardcoding would be that you can use org-cycle
in other modes, with outline-minor-mode, and I think a number of people
make use of this.

Of cause, if indeed an interesting speed bump can be achieved, we
can provide a stand-alone org-cycle, maybe even integrate it into
outline-mode itself.
