That would requires sh-mode-map to be defined before loading, or
define-key to work on undefined variables, and it would most certainly
cause any define-key in sh-mode.el to override the settings in .emacs.

All of this is not desirable.  I recommend you read up a bit more
about Elisp before making proposals.

Why would it be undesirable to have sh-mode-map (and other keymaps)
already defined (by dumping it into emacs via an autoload cookie)?
