However, there is a difference: some file types are more likely to be
edited (.ps files) while other are not (.pdf and .dvi).  Almost nobody
will want to edit .pdf and .dvi.

So you can put .ps files in ps-mode and doc-view-minor-mode,
and put .pdf/.dvi files in major mode doc-view-mode
(there is no need to put .pdf/.dvi in fundamental-mode).

For a solution how to activate a major/minor mode you could look
in image-mode-maybe.
