you are of course right; users can always customise their own setup.
However, when sharing Org files with other people this kind of tight
coupling between the Org file and the user's Emacs configuration can
become quite problematic.

Granted, this is not a problem if you only work alone on all of your
projects, but it effectively prevents users from using document
classes other than the ones provided by Org mode for shared documents
(especially when sharing documents with less experienced users).

My intention was not to start a debate on "article" vs. "scrartcl",
but it would be great to see some more variety in the default document
classes or maybe even a way to specify the desired document class as
well as the desired sectioning style directly in an Org file without
having to rely on the document class definition being available in
another user's Emacs config.

Btw, since I am not on the list, it would be great if everybody could
CC me on replies.
