Hmmm, seems that image-minor-mode is enabled in this case, with a
major mode of nxml-mode.  But image-minor-mode ultimately calls
image-toggle-display, and image-toggle-display is calling
use-local-map to obliterate whatever map is already there.
image-minor-mode can also call use-local-map, too.  All of that
arrangement seems to be set up by the image-mode-maybe function.

I wonder what the correct "policy" is for a minor mode w.r.t.
keybindings that can shadow a major mode?  Should the major mode's
keymap be the top-most local keymap, with all minor modes as parent
maps of that top-most local keymap? Or is it the other way around,
with each minor mode "pushing" its own local mode map to be top-most,
and causing the current major modes local map to be that parent of
that new one that was "pushed"?
