I am provoking Suvayu to defend himself, if that's not already clear to
you :-).

Let me provoke you a bit :-).

What is the difference between forward and linear.  

Is it linear only because it stays in column 0 always?


Is it linear because it is monotonic in how the cursor moves.

If you side with latter explanation, then I would argue that this notion
of linearity is no different from what is implied by forward.

Btw, I have no issues if you don't want to support
`org-forward-nonlinear-element'.  Yes, if the command does M-m
automatically at end, the cursor position will become curvilinear.
