   Doesn't Emacs recognize local variables in the last page?  Why not
   simply have a last "message" from Rmail that simply says

       This mailbox is an explicit Rmail mbox.  That means that Emacs
       will recognize it and automatically start Rmail mode, and you can
       set local variables here.  Keep the local variables at the end of
       this message.

       Local Variables:
       mode: rmail
       coding: binary

   Rmail could suppress display of that message ordinarily.

I like this.
