More on (B): the editor's "reading" of files

    ....By the bye, I'm not sure if your reply laid to rest my "fear" that one
    can produce an almost-correct common lisp source file which the zetalisp
    editor can't even bring in to a buffer (previous note used "load") because
    it dies trying to READ some little part of it that happens to be total
    garbage.  What's the scoop?

We provide and document a command that reads a file into the editor without
looking at its attributes.  You are then editing the file in Fundamental Mode,
and the editor makes no attempt to do anything language-specific.
