Principally that define-minor-mode knows what things it did and
therefore should be undone, or why they might not be undone at the
present time.  I think it would be rather repetitive to be obliged to
write a FOO-unload-function whenever making a minor mode.

Which, err, presumes that there may be standardized things that should
be considered and/or undone for unloading a mode.  I see you say there's
normally not -- where I say there could be a disable or a caution to
avoid likely breakage, removal from the minor modes menu, etc.
