You need to check if a file is going to be opened by Tramp; if so, it
usually requires a network trip and often is inconvenient for the user.

So you should have contentswitch-ignore be a set of options (you can set

- regexp
- 'hidden-buffer (I know a regexp can do this, but it's convenient separately)
- 'tramp (checks if Tramp would open it)
- 'encrypted (checks if EPA would open it)

The default should be '(tramp) I think.

For me at least, it's a very cool idea that is unusable without the
change above because my recent file history is spread over 20 servers
and 5 encrypted files.  I can send you a patch for the options above.
