Thanks.

Why, because Emacs 25 doesn't know about the new variable and its safe
values?  Or for some other reason?

Adding a variable that is not used for anything but declaring its safe
values should be OK, I think.

It's better, but still an annoyance.  And if the solution in non-Q
sessions is to accept the variable as safe anyway, then adding the
variable instead for the same purpose is not different, and should be
"safe" (pun intended ;-).
