I usually just put a headline at the end, titled "end" or "local variables", etc.., and tagged noexport,

Local variables at the end of the buffer are, indeed, a bit painful to
handle under Org. Org Footnote handles them reasonably well, I think,
but that's about it.

I would welcome a general solution to this, as long as it does not
impede speed of most basic Org commands.

Do you have an idea about it? Maybe a start would be to have a dedicated
Org version of `outline-next-heading' that moves before local variables
when it reaches the end of the buffer.
