Sorry, I don't understand what are "style alists" and the "official
styles".  Please elaborate on that.

Our style is defined by the .dir-locals.el file you see in the
repository.  indent-tabs-mode is t only in Emacs Lisp mode.

Fix how?  Change our style?  I think that'd be a hard change to sell,
because the current defaults were discussed several times and are a
kind of compromise between different preferences, but you need to
raise this on emacs-devel, not here.
