Rebinding is something specific that is harder if one uses binds a
lambda to a key.

This example from the top of the Elisp Manual section 22.12 would be
difficult if `kill-line' has been implemented with a lambda:

  (define-key my-mode-map [remap kill-line] 'my-kill-line)

In addition to (info "(elisp)Controlling-Active-Maps") see
`substitute-key-definition' in (info "(elisp)Changing Key Bindings")
for other problematic cases.
