The technical reason: Function that are not marked as interactive won't
show up in M-x.  See the the docstring of interactive and the elisp manual
for details.

Why wasn't it marked interactive [note, I'm speculating here]?  It's
unlikely that you could want or should to run org-element-interpret-data
with "hand-written" input.  The org-element form becomes quite long (check
org-element-at-point on your favorite element).  In any case, when you
need it just do M-:.

To the best of my knowledge I would say no.  If I'm wrong Nick D will
surely chim in with the correct answer.


May contains speling mistake
