`define-key' also changes a keymap.  We don't call it
`keymap-update', for a reason.  It's about defining a
key sequence.  Users think first and foremost in terms
of defining/setting/specifying/describing keys.  They
think about keymaps only when they have to, and as
"containers" for keys (key sequences).
