Hi Nicolas,

It is extremely predictable if you know about the structure of an Org document 
and if you think in elements.

It is unexpected for a user who is used to C-arrow doing paragraph motion.  In 
Org, org-backward-element climbs out if a hierarchy.  This is not what happens 
in other modes with this command.  That is what I mean with unexpected.

Don't get me wrong.  I love the element motion stuff.  But I am satisfied for 
it to be available on M-{ and M-}.  

I like your proposal to introduce a variable for special src behavior.  I 
personally would also like a variable that allows me to keep the paragraph 
commands on C-arrow (because I have almost equally convenient bindings with 
M-{}) - but maybe that is just me?
