We could provide some sort of mechanism to allow running even if the
mode/predicate says we shouldn't, but I'm not sure that's all that

For instance, if it's a command that doesn't run in read-only buffers
(that today has `barf-if-read-only' in the code of the command) has a
:when predicate that says the same thing, does it make sense to offer
the user to override that just because it's now been lifted up to the
`interactive' declaration?

Perhaps it does.  I'm not sure, though.
