over the temporary map.
The reason I think "transient" is a good term to use is that we already
use that word in Emacs in `transient-mode-map' to mean the same sort of
behavior: a mode of operation which features disappears after doing
something, returning you to the previous behavior. (We also use the
word "electric" similarly, but that is a lot more cryptic.)
