I'm new to Emacs, but know LaTeX and Pandoc.
I have a lot of beginner’s questions.
(Configuring emacs is quite difficult: should I use
- custom-set-variable
- starter-kit
- raw elisp in .emacs

In your document you are using alt instead of meta.
Not everyone uses alt for meta (especially on the Mac where alt (option) is 
used to access unusual characters).

How about

config.org ?
config-example.org ?

And ask the user to copy it to $USER.org

You achieved the opposite.
Now a user *has* to enable the config file.
Otherwise it would be clear that additional packages may be needed which may 
not be part of a minimal TeX Live installation.

Yes, and some additional LaTeX coding.

I'll wait for the next release and have a closer look.
