I didn't catch any of the previous discussion about keymap.el, but I
have a comment -- sorry if redundant.

Wouldn't it make sense to let keymap-set take multiple key-definition
pairs as arguments, like setq et al?  This would be very convenient
e.g. in user configuration files, where currently one often finds long
sequences of define-key calls.  This looks much better to me:

(keymap-set some-map
  "a" 'command-a
  "b" 'command-b
  "c" 'command-c)
