@appendix Standard Keymaps

The following symbols are used as the names for various keymaps.
Some of these exist when Emacs is first started, others are
loaded only when their respective mode is used.  This is not
an exhaustive list.

Almost all of these maps are used as local maps.  Indeed, of the modes
that presently exist, only Vip mode and Terminal mode ever change the
global keymap.
