Sorry, but isn't the point of .dir-locals.el to override settings on a project tree specific basis, like file locals only for whole directory trees? Wouldn't it'd be weird if .emacs "won" ?

I mean, I can see that yes, one might ALSO want a different kind of .dir-local.el or file-local setting that doesn't (In the common lisp case that could be handled by defvar vs. defparameter, say...)

(The thing that irritates me about dir-locals is their syntactic incompatiblity with file-locals. If I want to promote a file local I've been setting on a bunch of files to directory local, AFAIK I need to rejig the syntax.)
