Note that the "the TAB is extremely easy to hit" is not really an
argument here. It is no more true than "< s TAB" is faster than "C-c C-,
s", i.e., it depends on users, as we already observed.

More generally, this discussion is not about "Is Org Tempo useful?". The
answer is simple: yes, it is for some users. No need to argue about
that. But you can also find plenty of useful Org extensions in
"contrib/", or any ELPA. This does not mean they should all ship with

Deciding if an extension should or should not go into Org proper is
usually not an easy decision. In this case, a strong argument against it
is: there is already a template mechanism available out of the box, why
would we provide two of them? I think we should focus on this topic,
rather than personal preferences.
