That's definitely not DWIM.  Just because I happen to visit a dired
buffer does not mean that I want to execute a command starting with
"dired-".  In fact, most commands associated with the current buffer's
major mode are usually on a key, so the command I want to execute with
M-x is more likely _not_ associated with that mode.
