But then if you have some other key that generates ®, it will also be
rebound to `ignore' since you have really just done
(global-set-key [?®] 'ignore)

I think these Alt bindings should either be removed, or turned into
function-key-map bindings (so they don't take precedence over real key
Also we should address the problem that those key-bindings are only
present after loading iso-transl.el.
