The idea of  "entered text should be automatically escaped" means that
**bold** will not be made bold. Rather, users who want to enter Wiki
syntax would do that in source / raw mode. Isn't that what **bold** is
(wiki source code)? Why does Source mode exist otherwise?

Of course, there would ideally be a keyboard shortcut to easily enable
source / raw mode and to switch back to normal mode. To make text bold
in normal mode without entering source / raw mode, one has the Ctrl-B
shortcut.

Right, that would be normal mode and source / raw mode.
