FWIW, I'd much prefer the define-key-like approach you've suggested
earlier this thread (sorry, can't look it up right now), i.e., where you
can add different clauses separately.  Ideally, it would be cool if it
allowed to define the same key in different keymaps and still be working
as expected.  E.g.:

  (define-context-key outline-minor-mode-map (kbd "TAB")
    :predicate outline-heading-p
    :action org-cycle)

  (define-context-key emacs-lisp-mode-map (kbd "TAB")
    :predicate beginning-of-defun-p
    :action eval-defun)

And then in a elisp buffer with outline-minor-mode enabled, if I'm on a
outline heading, it would cycle through the outline states, if I'm at
the beginning of a defun, if would eval it, and if I'm on neither of
those, then it does what TAB would do usually.

I already do have such a macro, but it doesn't allow defining multiple
separate predicate-action combos for the same key.  Falling back to the
"do what TAB would do by default" does work, however.  (Actually, you
helped me implementing it.)
