I suggested this some time ago, but nobody responded.

Note that allowing saves for risky local variables is practically
equivalent to eliminating the concept of risky local variables.  If
Emacs allows saves for any variable not considered safe, the
`risky-local-variable' property has no special effect (as far as the
loading of local variables is concerned).
