Those are useful operations, but I doubt each of them is worth a
separate command and a new keybinding. Because each function is
a combo of two commands that are already quite fast and accessible,
and -- at least for me -- it seems easier to type M-<right> M-<up>
instead of the related keystroke you suggest.
Another approach would be to use this for yourself for a while,
see what are the most useful commands, and see if their keybinding
makes it really worth adding them to the core of Org.
