Sure. For example, any variable that tracks something related to
external characteristics of the buffer (or the buffer's associated
file, if any) must usually be automatically buffer-local.

In the case at hand, I think most buffers will want the same
`desktop-locals-to-save'. I can imagine buffer X in mode M wanting to
save its value of LOCAL-VAR-1, and buffer Y also in mode M wanting to
save its own LOCAL-VAR-1, but it will be less frequent for buffer X to
want to save LOCAL-VAR-1 and for buffer Y *not* wanting to save it.
