bug#30978: 25.3; Suggestion: define-minor-mode should define mode-lighte

From: Howard Melman
Subject: bug#30978: 25.3; Suggestion: define-minor-mode should define mode-lighter variable

Some packages define a user option to let users configure
the lighter string used in the mode-line, but some just use
a hard coded string. Packages such as diminish, delight and
dim exist to help customize these.

The define-minor-mode macro creates keymaps and other things
to help mode authors follow conventions. If it created a
mode-lighter user option when passed in a string (and not a
symbol) then users would have an easier time configuring
their mode-line without having to find and install a package
to do so.
