Well, the nice thing about the .dir-locals.el is that it makes
onboarding GNU Emacs users very fast. Editorconfig requires additional
packages/dependencies to be installed for Emacs and other editors. And
GNU Emacs is of course the developer editor for many GNUs ;-).

So I think having .dir-locals.el is fine. We could *also* have an configuration. The big question is more how to nicely
share those files across the various repositories. You mentioned in PM
that you were aware of several methods, maybe you could propose one?
