My cursor is sitting on a .zip file here in dired[-x].  I hit "v" to
just take a peek at what's in there, without a "f" or "RET", which I
would use if I intended to change the contents.

At this point I am pleasantly presented with the Zip-Archive modes
interpretation of the file, however, the view-mode's keymap is
imprinted on top of it! Yuck.

Do we have view-mode's keymap overprinted when we hit v on a
directory? No.

 Minor modes exist primarily to override the global and major mode
keymaps with their own special bindings.  View mode is a minor mode that
provides a consistent browsing interface to data that cannot or should
not be changed.

How do you propose that the bindings defined by View mode's keymap be
made sensitive to the global and major mode keymaps yet still provide
essentially the same interface?
