We are aware.

auto-mode-alist is NOT a user option, never was.  Emacs has been
tweaking its value for users' benefits for eons, and CC Mode does that
as well.

major-mode-remap-alist _is_ a user option, which is one reason why
solutions proposed back when Emacs 29 was in the works that involved
changing the value of major-mode-remap-alist were unacceptable to me.
The changes installed by Stefan don't touch major-mode-remap-alist,
probably for the same reason; instead, they introduce a new internal
variable and tweak that.

No, it is not.
