If FILE1 and FILE2 have different 'files-equal-p handlers, which one
of them, if any, should be invoked here?

IOW, shouldn't we invoke a file handler only if it can handle _both_
files?  Also, if each file has a different handler, doesn't that in
itself already mean the files are not equal?

Same issue here.  Except that, unlike in the files-equal-p case, it's
not so clear what to do if each file has a different handler, or if
one has a handler, but the other doesn't.
