    It's unlikely that making the file local variable mechanism stricter,
    while keeping unsafep.el the same, will open up new security holes
    that didn't already exist.  Anyway, it is pretty easy to change
    unsafep.el to reflect the changes to files.el.

Could you take a look at doing that?  It may not be quite trivial.
In particular, the fact that unsafep checks for functions
could make some things safe, which otherwise would not be.
