I see.  The comments in mule.el say that

;; This variable is set in these three cases:
;;   (1) A file is read by a coding system specified explicitly.
;;       after-insert-file-set-coding sets the car of this value to
;;       coding-system-for-read, and sets the cdr to nil.
;;   (2) A buffer is saved.
;;       After writing, basic-save-buffer-1 sets the car of this value
;;       to last-coding-system-used.
;;   (3) set-buffer-file-coding-system is called.
;;       The cdr of this value is set to the specified coding system.
;; This variable is used for decoding in revert-buffer and encoding in
;; select-safe-coding-system.

Indeed, this seems to imply that (2) can be omitted, as you suggest,
since "force selecting" a coding system should trigger (1) and (3).  Is
there any reason that (2) was originally included?
