Why is Eli running into a command that has differing meaning based on which

Nothing's stopping us from using a different keymap dependent on the "kind" of xref buffer, but unless we name the "kinds" of xref buffers appropriately, and refer to those names in documentation, having xref-query-replace bound in one case and unbound in the other will only exacerbate the problem.

We could also make the different "kinds" look somewhat different (they do already, but perhaps not by enough), but that won't, by itself, be sufficient.
