No, (require 'org-loaddefs) is wrong, plain and simple.  Except of
course when you want to just get the autoloads for an Org from Git
installation, since then _all_ autoloads for Org are in this file.

No, it has _all_ autoloads in the same file, all other installations
split the autoloads between two files (and automatically load the first
and you never need to take care about the second).

But it is a problem.

It splits the autoload definitions into two files like all other
installations.  Almost everybody can then safely forget about
org-loaddefs (since it is taken care of in org itself) and only needs to
load org-install for Org from Git.
