But _why_ wouldn't it be "smart"?  The command _is_ executed, it has

Neither does any harm to PgUp at the beginning of a buffer. What is
the message for? To alert me that I cannot go up? Well, my overwrite
message is to alert me that I cannot overwrite even if I just changed
to overwrite, and that I shouldn't expect most normal keys to act
differently just because I changed to overwrite.

I have often wanted colored messages for different levels of seriousity. I think that might make it easier to decide in some situations like this.
