     without having to enumerate all of them.  A keymap that has a
     default binding completely masks any lower-precedence keymap.

in the "Format of keymaps" section.  I noticed though that I made
myself a note saying: "Use [t] for `key' to specify the default
binding" in the define-key definition of my own copy of the Elisp
manual.  Since I felt the need to remind myself of that using a note
and you seem confused by it, you are probably right that adding a
small sentence to that effect in the define-key documentation might be
