I've been playing with 'mwim.el' today, and came up with something that 
might be interesting.

Btw, Bastien, I've seen the message you've sent to emacs-devel about 
this. Thank you. A pity it doesn't seem to have drawn much attention.

Anyway, what I came up is a slight variation from Marco's approach, 
which may be just general enough to be employed by Org.

#+begin_src emacs-lisp
(add-hook 'visual-line-mode-hook #'my/visual-line-mode-hook-for-org)

(defun my/visual-line-mode-hook-for-org ()
  (when (and (derived-mode-p 'org-mode)
    ;; Ensure 'visual-line-mode' does not shadow Org's line commands.
    (local-set-key [remap move-beginning-of-line] nil)
    (local-set-key [remap move-end-of-line] nil)
    (local-set-key [remap kill-line] nil)))

I've lightly tested this here and it seems to be working.


Best regards,
