    On the other hand, it's normal Emacs behavior that clicking on a word on
    the mode-line does something useful, somehow related to that word.

What it does is toggle the mode in question.  Moving point is
something very different.  That's the sort of command that is normally
found in the menu bar, never in the mode line, and certainly not among
the minor modes.

If this interface is a great practical convenience, maybe it is
important enough to justify the inconsistency.  But I'd expect that it
is not a great practical convenience, because the keystroke is more
efficient--isn't that so?

Is there a practical importance for this click interface,
other than that it was possible to implement?
