Right, and we cannot summarily allow any variables a given Emacs
doesn't know about, that'd we unsafe.

Rather than requiring users of older Emacsen to change their init
files in such strange ways, which will/might be a problem when they
upgrade to Emacs 27, why not expect users who want the early detection
of long lines to turn on display-fill-column-indicator-mode in their
init files?  IOW, the solution that requires changes to one's init
files goes both ways.

This is fine with me, but I don't think we should make the change in
.dir-locals.el.

Thanks.
