Since we are the people who control Org, we can do what we
find convenient. I think longtable was added because I personally
use it often and find it convenient to have it in the default.
I am fine with adding both wrapfig and rotating as long as they do
not cause issues with other packages often used.  LaTeX is so fast
these days that it is not harmful to load a few more packages - as
long as no conflicts arise.
