Indeed.  In fact, I'm not sure deprecating `default-major-mode' in
favor of `major-mode' was a good idea at all.  It seems weird to me
that setting it's default value via `set-default' is meaningful, but
setting it's local value isn't.

As an aside, I try to set everything possible through Customize, just
in case some things are set up to trigger side-effects.
