Maybe :interactive, just to write it in the positive sense.  The default
must be t for compatibility.  A couple of words in the docs could note
that special modes usually should be nil.

Perhaps special-mode itself would be the second customer for this.
I presume special-mode is not intended for interactive use, and it
doesn't do much helpful (set buffer-read-only).
