A tour with ability to choose stuff on the fly is
still different from a mode for a set of settings
and an interface to "customize" or add to those
settings.  IMO.

The latter lets you turn the mode on/off anytime.
And it lets you "customize" it anytime.  Those
things are not mixed in with following a tour.

Letting a tour give you one way to "customize"
such a mode would be fine.  But you shouldn't
need to go through a tour to do that.

IOW, they're related, but not the same, I think.
