The purpose of not having `*' presumably is to have them affect the

I'm not sure I understand. Do you mean that people routinely does kill
operations on a read-only buffer in order to copy text to the kill

Uh what?  Switching to overwrite-mode/binary-overwrite-mode does not
change the buffer, does it?

No. But it seems like an error to *interactively* change to
overwrite-mode in a read-only buffer, doesn't it?
