       The reason for this is to make it simple to request the usual options.

    I do not see why you need a separate variable for that.  Why can one
    not use indicate-empty-lines and indicate-buffer-boundaries to do

Because they are more complex.  This is simple.
It is meant for less experienced users.

      You would also need to change the Emacs

If you tell me precisely where, I will do that.

    Another problem is that the first line of the indicate-empty-lines
    docstring is pretty self-explanatory.  So somebody setting this
    through Custom may not click on MORE and see the warning about first
    setting fringe-indicators to `other'.

To avoid small problem risks like that is probably impossible.
It would not be worth making a major change because of this.
Can you think of nay small change to avoid this risk?
