Yes, it is very relevant.  I am surprised by the fact
that minor mode maps can override a major mode map.
My problem was that the msb minor mode was enabled and
I had to disable that.  In general, I do not know how
a program like mine would know which of many unknown
possibilities for minor modes might be interfering.  I
would like for other folks to be able to use the
program, but I don't know what minor modes they may
have enabled by default.  Furthermore, it might be
rude to just start arbitrarily disabling _all_ minor
modes on the grounds that they _might_ interfere.

Is there a way for a major mode's binding to take
precedence over any minor modes?  The
overriding-local-map is not overriding enough unless
the above documentation is stated incorrectly.
