I think it'd be useful to add a warning/prompt when saving, along the lines
of "set outside customize: saving may not work".  With such a warning, we
could drop the "changed outside customize" state (well: keep it internally,
of course, but not show it to the user) and still know that users won't be
surprised when things don't work.
