Sorry, but I don't recall which minor-mode help I was
looking at the day I filed that bug (shoulda noted the
function name).  But the mode was defined by
`define-minor-mode', and the help had a sentence saying
that (minor-map) keymap such-and-such was not yet
defined. The map variable was mentioned and its value
was described, at least that far.

In any case, #1 and #2 here are about the mode variable,
not the keymap variable.
