This stretches the definition of workflow. Other users had a less
consistent workflow, but since orgmode had never done electric indent,
they did not have a workflow requiring electric indent in org which
could be broken by the existing behaviour.

This is rather an example where going for consistency over stability
creates problems.

(but still: that happened once; emacs is not perfectly stable, but when
staying close to vanilla, it is mostly stable)
