Thank you, looks good!

Yes, makes sense, somewhat like language-specific babel features (see

Yes, I was thinking to a fake style file ("fake" in the sense that
doesn't correspond to real LaTeX style file), that is loaded by
letter.el, lettre.el, etc.  This may be a bit hackish, but avoid
filling tex.el or latex.el with non-generic functions.
