Think of "C-x <someevent> C-s".  Should "someevent" be considered as
part of the whole key-sequence for the purpose of command lookup, or is
"someevent" sufficiently special that it should be run immediately
regardless of the previous "C-x" and then ignored from the overall
key-sequence which will just read "C-x C-s"?

If the latter, then your event should be handled by special-event-map.
