key-binding already looks up events or keys, so I suppose you are
confused about what I was proposing.  The purpose is to look up a key
such as [follow-link] in the chain of keymaps corresponding to a click

So the event takes the place of the keymap, not of the key.  If you
set both key and keymap to the same event, you can look up the binding
of an event in the chain of keymaps associated with the click

If the key is [follow-link] and the keymap is the event, then
[follow-link] will be searched for in all corresponding keymaps.
