I use it for navigating a buffer (not necessarily Org) linearly; i.e. go
back and forth between parts I'm working on or to peruse the contents of
a file.  That said, often I feel the need for a navigation command which
allows me to navigate the semantics of the buffer (which exactly what
Nicolas's elements based navigation does).

I think you are right here.  There is a need for both.  For me, I use
linear navigation more commonly; so I would prefer C-<up/down> for
linear navigation and some other bindings (like C-M-f/b, as you suggest)
for the elements based motion.
