[ENHANCEMENT] Make `org-babel-do-in-edit-buffer' environment detectable

Concrete use case: I got fed up by sh-mode notifying me about "Indentation 
setup for shell type bla" when editing shell source blocks in an Org buffer.  
(To reproduce, start "emacs -Q", open an empty org file, create a shell source 
block with contents "  echo foo", and press TAB on that line.)

So I wanted to advice `sh-set-shell' to surpress all messages, *but only* when 
called from macro `org-babel-do-in-edit-buffer'. To detect that, I resorted to 
variable `org-inhibit-startup', but that is not really intended for that 

For this and similar use cases (run/do not run some major mode hook only in Org 
source environment), it would be helpful to have a documented dynamic variable 
(`org-in-babel-environment'?) set by `org-babel-do-in-edit-buffer' or the like 
that one could query as 

  (when (and (boundp 'org-in-babel-environment) org-in-babel-environment)
    ;; do org-specific stuff)
