    I would like there to be something telling me the difference between
    the two ASCII characters ^L and the corresponding control character.

In some text buffers, it might be appropriate to have ^L displayed as, say,
a horizontal line (dotted or otherwise) to indicate a page boundary - as in
some word processors. Such a disply option should be just that: an option,
in any case.

In other kinds of buffers, where ^L does not signify a page boundary, such a
display option would not be appropriate.
