`org-mode-map` binds `[tab]` which is unnecessary and harmful, since it
takes precendence over bindings of TAB even in keymaps with higher

I've observed this problem with my GNU ELPA package Corfu, which
installs a keymap with higher precedence than org-mode. In order to
override Org, it also has to bind [tab], which is undesired.
