Possibly.  Another frequent annoyance I notice is that when inserting
environments in beamer, I tend to need frame and itemize alternatively.

I see several ways out of that one: we could offer the frame environment
as default when in top level (and not let it override the existing
default).  Or we could keep a separate default for every nesting level.
That would facilitate repeatedly entering the same basical structure.
It would also mean that we don't need to special-case the document

Or we could allow environment specifications like frame,itemize and they
would enter nested environments in the first place.  The last is
probably most powerful, but will not be easily discovered by the average
user even when the prompt asks for "environment(s):"
