No, you don't.  What you're implying is that as maintainer of a minor
mode, you have the right to dictate which parts of Emacs may be used by
a major mode, and how.  That's not how things work.

And I have not said there is a bug "in" electric-pair-mode.  I said that
it does not offer the requisite facilities to support CC Mode.  I have
been asking you for an enhancement rather than a bug fix.

I'm prepared to do this, but only on the understanding you will, on
principle, accept my solution, subject only to the customary review and
amendments process that any change goes through.  

What do you say?
