Yes, we should advertise it more.  Although I do not intend to get rid
of turn-on/off-foo-modes, I do want to discourage their use (I'd like
to obsolete them, but currently we don't have any good way to obsolete
end-user-functions, since the obsolescence-info is only used by the
byte-compiler which the end-user is likely to never run on his .emacs).
