Is it OK to change the name of this var to `magic-default-mode-alist'?
I think `file-start' is a bad choice because it makes the relation to
magic-mode-alist non-obvious, and it incorrectly implies that only the start
of the file is used, even though the match-function might very well use the
end of the file (or any other part, as a matter of fact) instead.
