It depends.  If a global value or at least default makes sense of its
own, I'd not use make-variable-buffer-local.  For values that carry
information that only ever makes sense tied to a buffer, I'd use it.

This probably implies that it makes more sense with defvar rather than
with defcustom.

Don't know whether there is a general policy here.
