They're modes in that they affect the entire operation 
of the program.  Think of language editing modes in 
emacs; language levels have even more pervasive effects.

If I edit a Scheme program in fundamental mode, I get 
funny indenting behavior.  That why it's useful that 
emacs displays its editing modes in the status bar.
