If you use advanced features of Org, you're more or less bound to share
your documents with a config file anyway.

I don't understand your question. Equivalent blocks do not exist in
standard LaTeX, do they? Also, this has nothing to do with inlinetasks.

In Beamer export, headlines can generate blocks. This is handy because
they can be easily nested, accept properties through drawers, etc.
Special blocks are more limited. Though, you cannot close a headline, so
the "ignoreheading" trick was implemented.

In LaTeX export, headlines generate headlines.

I think you are asking too much for Org syntax.
