Yes, you're right. I used the code above for an extension that Emacs
doesn't yet know about (with no major-mode, and no major-mode
hook). However, it's possible to set both the major and minor mode for
one extension using the following:

(add-to-list 'auto-mode-alist 
             '("\\.foo\\'" . (lambda () (c-mode) (auto-revert-mode 1))))

Perhaps it would be useful if Emacs had an `auto-minor-mode-alist'
variable, i.e., a list of minor modes that are enabled based on file
name without bothering with major modes.
