Thanks.  A few minor comments:

I wonder whether auto-save-files-mode is a better name, as the
"visited" part looks now out of place.  (If you do rename it, please
also rename the time-interval variable accordingly.)

I think the name should be sufficiently different from auto-save-mode so that the modes can't be confused. auto-save-files-mode would be confusing, because auto-save-mode also saves files. I think including the "visited" word is useful here because it's the meaningful distinction between the modes: one uses the visited file name, the other doesn't.

"Very similar" begs the question "what's the difference?"  If there
are differences, let's describe them; if there aren't, let's say
"identical to" or "the same as".

But if auto-save mode is enabled and auto-save-visited-file-name is
set, then this new mode will not auto-save, right?  This should be

I suggest to mention this variable where you describe the new mode,
since the two descriptions are several tens of lines apart.

I think the last sentence should be part of the description of the
mode, not of the variable.  Doing so will also provide a good
opportunity to mention auto-save-visited-interval.

Please add a :version tag to new defcustoms.

A typo.
