Hm - `setq-default' in a mode-specific hook?
Isn't that a contradiction in, uhm, purpose?

What happens if you just put

    (setq-default fill-column 66)

in the init file?

Well, there can be such a need even in the face of
default bindings but in this case there isn't as M-q
is very good and especially compared to F6 which is
very bad.
