I've now implemented a better fallback mechanism, so that C-c C-c in
doc-view-mode opens the document in whatever mode would be chosen if
doc-view wasn't there (e.g. archive-mode for od[st] docs).  So IMO,
adding all OpenDocument and MS Office file extensions to the
doc-view-mode entry in auto-mode-alist should be fine, now.

Additionally, doc-view-previous-major-mode could be deleted.  That makes
only sense now if the user switched to some other major-mode manually
before enabling doc-view-mode, which seems to be a very unlikely
