The mode is so unimportant that I would not give it a keybinding of
its own: it would be only interesting, at best, for debugging
purposes of some manner.  If buffers make text invisible, they have a
reason for it and should provide sane semantics in connection.

I don't see the necessity in the context of info files: there I would
just delete the text in question from the buffer instead of making it
visible (we had this already).  Most certainly the `i' binding in
info is much too important to give it up for toggling a minor mode
most people will never in their life need to use.
