I don't see why it's important for `q' to do exactly the same thing in
view-mode and special-mode.  It seems reasonable for `q' to bury the
buffer in special-mode, which knows nothing about what the inheriting
mode's buffers are for (so burying is safer than killing).  In
view-mode, killing the buffer is reasonable if we regard view-mode as a
"less"-like quick way to view and then discard a file, in which case it
would be a nuisance to keep the buffer around afterward.
