Yes, okay.

Agreed.  My statement was thought as a pointer to the possibility to
drop the <>-parenthesis-feature without touching the documentation.

Yes, agreed.

Currently I run Org mode without the <> parenthesis using the patch:

modified   lisp/org.el
-  (modify-syntax-entry ?< "(>")
-  (modify-syntax-entry ?> ")<")
+  ;; (modify-syntax-entry ?< "(>")
+  ;; (modify-syntax-entry ?> ")<")

Up to now I don't miss the <> parenthesis.  But this is just me.
