I'm confused: I thought we were talking about features implemented via
file-name handlers.  jka-compr is, for example.

Or are you saying write-region-literally shouldn't even try file-name
handlers?  That'd be different from what
insert-file-contents-literally does.

For the present use case, sure.  But we are discussing a more general
solution, right?  The question is, will all of them want to disable
those conversions?
