I guess if the make-local-variable and setq get separated then it might
not be immediately obvious that the variable is buffer-local.

However, my original question was that with a variable like
font-lock-defaults, that automatically becomes buffer-local in each buffer, I
presumably don't need to use make-local-variable at all?
