Maybe then create a separate key prefix map for tab operation keys:

C-x 7 0         delete-tab
C-x 7 1         delete-other-tabs
C-x 7 2         make-tab-command
C-x 7 b         switch-to-buffer-other-tab
C-x 7 C-f       find-file-other-tab

(`C-x 6' prefix is already occupied by 2C-two-columns, but `C-x 7' is free).
