Indeed.  It might be a bug in the major-mode, tho (which manifests
for example under ttys where the TAB key sends a \t rather than a `tab').

No.  What you're trying to do is inherently tricky/fiddly/unreliable
because Emacs's key-binding infrastructure is not designed for that.

You might want to report a bug asking for some feature that lets you do
what you want (which I suspect is something like "let my command
delegate to the next command bound to this key").
