Why? No reason given.

But you say "then", as if being a global variable is a reason it shouldn't have
a buffer-local value.

Since we have apparently replaced the classic behavior of `next-line', so it
respects `line-move-visual', yes. (But I personally have no problem if we go
back to the classic behavior, with normal line movement in all buffers.)

If a non-nil value of `line-move-visual' is not appropriate for some (most?)
buffers, but (some people think) it is appropriate for some other buffers, then
that's the obvious conclusion: make it buffer-local.
