But neither of those activities seem related to calling the exit
function or calling keyboard-quit.

Because we need to know which is the next command before we know whether
to exit or not: E.g. after hitting C-u we don't know yet whether to
exit, it's only once the user hits the next key that we know whether to
exit (e.g. she pressed `a`) or stay (e.g. she pressed `5`).
And when she presses `a`, we need to exit *before* running the command
bound to `a`: sometimes it could be OK to linger on until the end of
the command bound to `a`, but not in general.
