Ok, I understand (that also answers a question I was tempted to ask you
about why SES files don't violate your design goals).  But I would
consider this to be a new feature (which I still have doubts about),
which could be considered for the trunk, but not for emacs-24.  In
contrast, the use of auto-mode-alist is a bug-inducing misfeature and
should be removed before the release.
