What I want (in TEXT & FUNDAMENTAL modes) is for the TAB key to just add a TAB.
C-q TAB – is this a choice?
Of course not. It does work, but I'm not going to type C-q TAB every time I want a TAB any more than I'm willing to type C-q R every time I want an "R".

You could do what I do - bind Ctrl-Tab to insert an ASCII <tab>:

  (global-set-key [C-tab] (lambda () (interactive) (insert-char 9 1)))

I don't want to globally set anything. I like the way the TAB key works in C and Lisp modes. I just want to change its behavior in TEXT and FUNDAMENTAL modes.
