    There are several possible ways -- for instance, a special `llet' form,
    if you just want to use lexical binding for particular cases [maybe in a
    speed critical inner loop],

I see no harm in that.  If you yearn to do it, please write the code.
I want to take a look at it before it is installed, though.

                                or perhaps putting `(use-lexical-binding)'
    at the top-level of an elisp source file, which would cause
    byte-compiler to lexically bind local variables instead of using the
    normal dynamic binding.

I think that binding a variable in the -*- line would be a cleaner and
more consistent interface for this.

You do plan to make this work interpreted too, right?
