    The "event" is a "key" (not a key sequence: just one key).
    Its binding is either a command or another map (if the key is a prefix

1. I'm only saying that the doc is unclear to me. If you think it's clear,
leave it as is. My impression is that the doc generally speaks of, say,
`C-k' as a "key sequence" not as an "event".

FWIW - Elisp manual page "Keymap Terminology" says that "key" is short for
"key sequence", which is "a sequence of input events". In particular, "a
sequence of one event is always a key sequence".

2. I still have the question about whether FUNCTION is called for each
binding or each key sequence.
