But if a user binds a key that's supposed to be for modes, and then they 
load a mode that also binds that key, they'll have a conflict. The point 
of these conventions is to avoid conflicts like this.

If you don't mind losing one of the mode's keybindings, that's fine, but 
you should do it with full knowledge of the potential conflict.
