    Why not let `outline-regexp' go with the mode, although not through a
    function as it's done now, but with defcustom.

The way this is done now is that major modes can set `outline-regexp'
as a buffer-local variable.

Stefan suggested:

    If the user sees this text via C-h v it will also give both the global and
    the buffer-local value, thus making it fairly obvious what's going on.

    Maybe `custom' should do similar: e.g. check whether the variable is locally
    changed in some buffers and if so add a little blurb about the global
    setting not taking effect in those buffers.

I think that is a good idea.
