Is there EVER a good reason to really override -kb?

I have at times wished that -k options didn't override -kb.  I wanted to
do something on most files, without having to go back and special case
binary files.

Perhaps a new -k options, say -kB, to indicate binary that is NOT
overridden by other -k options should be worked on.
