Well, the local keymap wins over the mode keymap.

I don't find image mode that interesting, actually.  I think images,
whenever displayed in Emacs, should offer ways of interacting.  Scaling,
of course, but also saving, for instance.  And rotation.

And thinking about it a bit more, I think we could probably afford to
grab some pretty basic keys for these commands.  If the user puts the
cursor on an image, I think it's very likely that the user wants to
interact with that image.  So we could bind keys like `-' and `+'.

Drag an image into a Message buffer, scale it, rotate it, and send the
message.  I think that sounds rather attractive...

Other modes that insert images today often also puts keymaps on images
(like eww does), but these could be derived from this new keymap.
Errr...  `image-map'.  Perhaps.

We can give it a try and see whether it's annoying or not in practice.
These UI things usually require a bit of usage to see whether they "feel
nice" or not.
