Stefan's arguments against not being able to discover commands for
not-read-only-buffers in read-only buffers were good, but that was,
after all, not the original proposal.

The proposal was to not make `M-x TAB' list mode-specific commands.  So
that `M-x di TAB' in a Message mode buffer doesn't list
`diary-hebrew-insert-entry', which is a pretty useless thing to do.

Are anybody against that idea?

The commands need instrumentation, one way or another, and that has to
happen in Emacs, not in ELPA.
