        > I have the following in my .emacs file

    That's just a copy of what bindings.el has, with some changes.

Yes!  That is why it is a simpler user command than one such as
customize-* which has more than a dozen completions.

    ... set for when I want to change the mode-line appearance temporarily.

I cannot help you.  Changing the value in a setq is the quickest method
that I know and requires the least learning.  Fortunately, writing a
.emacs file (mostly by copying, of course) is less complicated than
reading, which almost every child learns (in a developed country).
Emacs takes some learning, like all else.  Doubtless, anything that we
can learn and become accustomed to, even `customize-*', can become
`intuitive'.  But I lack the ability to learn anything complicated.  So
I stick to .emacs files.  (I am not as good as I was.)
