+1!  Thanks for reviving this thread.

I would suggest a larger set of enhancements here:

- S-RET on a heading copies down the heading.

  For that we would need a new command `org-clone-subtree' bound to
  S-RET that would immediately copy the heading at point. This command
  would accept a universal argument to allow for a number a clones and
  two universal arguments for adding a time shift.

  `org-clone-subtree-with-time-shift' would continue to be bound to
  `C-c C-x c' but would be really a call to `org-clone-subtree'

- S-RET on a list item calls `org-insert-subitem`, a new command.

- C-M-RET on a heading calls `org-insert-subheading', the existing

- C-M-RET on a list item calls `org-insert-subitem', a new command.

S-RET already "copy down" a table cells, so I'm really suggesting a
generalization of the current keybinding.

I like C-M-RET better than S-RET because inserting a subheading is
like a "subkey" or inserting a heading.

These improvements seem consistent.  WDYT?
