But you can get the same result with suitable use of eldoc-remove-command.

Agreed.  But I usually need it *just before* typing.  IOW, I navigate to
the point where I want to write, then look at the eldoc info, then start
typing.  Sometimes the navigation is not in eldoc-message-commands, so
I need to do something like "C-b C-f" to get eldoc to come up, but with
eldoc-post-insert-mode it's worse, because the obvious "equivalent" of
"SPC DEL" does not end with a self-insert so I need to do SPC, then read
eldoc, then DEL which I find even more annoying.

Not sure why that's relevant.
