    It's not just ..-mode-map, but also ..-abbrev-table, ..-syntax-table,
    and ..-mode-hook.

That's right.  I mentioned just the one that matters most.
The others add a little to the point.

    `find-tag' works for dozens of different languages.  Why should it
    suddenly be uglified with special hacks for one of those languages

The code would be a tiny bit more complex, but the behavior
would be simpler and more regular.  I think that is cleaner
than generating extra tags.  Also it's better to change Lisp code
than change C code.
