What you propose is exactly the other way around, first vc-next-action
then insert that log message in the ChangeLog file. But ChangeLog files
got more and more unpopular and are omitted in for example GNU emacs,
they are only used as a tool: first add an entry to ChangeLog (since for
lisp it has nice navigation markers), then insert that entry into the
commit message for vc-next-action.

I want to do the same for org files, using their syntax as navigations
references. Here is the addon for latex to make my point clearer.
Of course it contains a lot of auctex/reftex specific stuff.

the current labeled environment, and the label, if any."
