I've never heard of this "standard", but assuming it exists, why is it
important as more than a general guideline?  Having appropriate minor
modes turned on automatically seems quite reasonable to me...

[What's important is that I be able to override the behavior, and I
guess that would be easy as long as the "automatic" minor modes get
turned on before the major mode hook gets run.]

I agree.

[In particular, I like the behavior with respect to .xpm files (which is
one of the few cases being discussed that actually happens in practice);
sometimes I want to open them as image files, sometimes as C files, but
I strongly dislike being prompted.  "scheme 2"s behavior of defaulting
to one mode or the other and having a convenient keystroke to switch
seems like the best thing in such a case.]
