I have reported this as a bug.¹ I think it is important enough for the
.dir-locals.el to be loaded, otherwise, users end up editing files in a
way non-conforming to the requirement of a project and editing is the
most important reason to use tramp for the comfort of Emacs.

Would be interesting to hear your thought and input. Thanks.

Kind regards,
