Your "definition" is fuzzy:

 * Headline

   [lots of text]

   <-- M-RET here will insert a headline, which is by no mean adjacent to point.

In this case I value simplicity over complexity (or "smartness",
whatever you call it). Anyone, including newcomers, should be able to
use M-RET without knowing about (affiliated) keywords, or be bothered
with them.

IMO, it /is/ sensible to insert a headline (or an item) without trying
to outsmart the user. 

Also, headlines are first-class citizens in Org. Keybindings acting on
them shouldn't be bothered with other citizens.
