I don't like this solution because it is too ad-hoc.
How about the following?

Currently the first line of the file can specify several modes:

     -*- mode: MODE-NAME; mode: MINOR-MODE-NAME;  ... -*-

But why can't `auto-mode-alist' allow to do the same?
If `auto-mode-alist' allowed to put a list of modes instead
of one mode then the solution would be simple:

(push '("\\.png\\'" . image-mode) auto-mode-alist)
(push '("\\.xbm\\'" (c-mode image-minor-mode)) auto-mode-alist)
