That's a fair assumption; still, I could imagine some users liking the
new buttons enough to want them in e.g. NEWS or Org buffers.

If that doesn't sound too outlandish,

(1) Should outline-minor-mode-use-buttons be renamed to

(2) Should it be left for opinionated modes to tweak (and opinionated
    users to adjust in mode hooks), or should it be customizable?
    Something like

    - nil: never use buttons

    - t: always use buttons (in outline-minor-mode, outline-mode, and
      derived modes)

    - a list of modes; this could be the default value, set to

I can no longer reproduce that specific issue, so 🤷🎉

Another minor nit though: if I move to "Major Mode Bindings:" with 'n',
then hit 'C-p', I move to the end of the previous line (i.e. after the
"Key translations:" ellipsis) instead of the beginning (i.e. the "Key
translations:" button).

It's not a big deal since 'p' works fine; just slightly disorienting.
