Same here, the mode follows from what I'm doing in the buffer, and the
filename.  I rarely even look at the CVS minor mode indicator, I know
that I'm editing files under VC, and if I need to look at the revision
info, I usually need C-x v l or something similar anyway.

On a side note, the mode line indicators when using Gnus is utterly
useless, I know I'm using Gnus by looking at the buffer.
