Yes.

Well, we'll need to make this more accurate, to exclude encoding, EOL
conversion, and the likes, but okay.  (And "raw" sounds like a wrong
word for this.)

Probably.  But the question of what should that do (since you rejected
tweaking inhibit-file-name-operation for that) still stands, I think.

And I'm not sure we will always want to disable encoding and EOL
conversion, so that should be an add-on for "truly" literal I/O.
