If we have a dir-locals.el that says:

I think it would make sense to give this setting "lower priority"
than the setting of indent-tabs-mode that might be imposed by the
major mode.

The current priority order is sensible to me.

I use the major mode hooks to set my preferred behaviour for each
mode, and dir-local settings to override them in cases where I should
*not* be using the defaults (e.g. to enforce a particular project's
coding standards).
