Sorry for my misunderstanding.

For the record, I'd like us to keep our application-level hands off
the mode line.  It is already too cramped with useful stuff that
shouldn't be removed.  The fact that applications can redefine the
mode line by changing mode-line-format should not IMO be interpreted
as an invitation to put arbitrary stuff there.
