Ignorance, mainly.  :-)  It sounds like a great idea, though.

mode-line-process appears to work fine for Emacs 2[012], but not for
XEmacs, where it is displayed to the right of the minor modes.

This variable is defined by the info it displays, not by its position in
the mode line.  It would have been nice to have the variable
`mode-right-of-name' (and even `mode-left-of-name').  It is a pity that
it is now too late to add these variables into the standard
mode-line-format and the Elisp manual.

Is there any guarantee that a buffer.c won't invoke any process (whatever
that might mean) that would overwrite mode-line-process?
