Enabling a mode has a lot of side effects - it's no surprise that most
modes can't be enabled by just setting the mode's variable.  Just as
adding "MODE" to the mode-line won't enable the mode.

There are some special examples where setting the mode variable does
suffice to turn the mode, but that's due to the kind of implementation
(you can, for example, set up the mode so that it is on, more or less,
all the time, but permanently watches the variable and does nothing and
stays silent when the variable is nil).
