Sure, Tramp (and ange-ftp, perhaps also url-handlers) will use them
internally. But they shall also be good for other packages. Bug#24394
discusses `shell-file-name' and `shell-command-switch'. Bug#3736
discusses server-local settings for `null-device'. And in bug#18940 I've
proposed server-local settings of `process-environment' (well, Stefan did
object, but this was not discussed until its end, I believe).

If you fear that it would inflate files.el too much, we could locate
these functions in files-x.el.

Best regards, Michael.
