Since you are asking for opinions:

The bug you originally mentioned with text-scale-mode and
revert-buffer is incredibly frustrating.  I incorrectly assumed there
was a good reason for the behaviour, and never bothered looked into
it.  So thank you for doing that.

I agree that all four modes above should stay enabled on
revert-buffer, including hl-line-mode.
