    It seems to me that the most precise and unambiguous term is
    "directory-local file variables".  It is based on the standard term
    "file variables" as defined in the node (info "(emacs) File Variables")
    and "directory-local" says that their scope is limited to the specified

Since a directory is _less_ "local" than a single file,
perhaps "directory-wide file variables" would be better.
