Ok. Thank you. That makes sense.
I'm sure this is all very well thought out, and I apologize if this
comes across as foolish, but out of curiosity does this account for
procedures such as `process-file', `call-process', `start-process',
`start-file-process' etc. which base their file-handlers on the
e.g. the default-directory doesn't exist at buffer creation, a
sub-process (synchronous or otherwise) comes along, attempts to take
residence in default directory, and not finding a 'there' there,
proceeds to build himself a new home.
