    is it necessary to have a predefined predicate in all cases, or will
    quoting the lambda be sufficient?

Quoting the lambda is sufficient.

i've attached a patch (allout-patch.txt), ChangeLog
(allout-ChangeLog.txt), and revised NEWS fragment (allout-NEWS.txt)
for allout that addresses the stuff we've been discussing, and a few
other things.

in the patch, any autoloaded safe-local-variables lambdas are quoted.
the patch also incorporates some of the other refinements that were
suggested in this discussion, though i am leaving the
safe-local-variable property assignments as active code (rather than
containing them in the autoload comment) and continuing to use a
lambda rather than booleanp.  both of these measures will make it
easier to use allout in older emacs, without adding significant

the patch also includes a few small fixes, including the start on
deprecating a poorly named hook variable.  that last is the reason
thatm i'm including a new version of the fragment for the NEWS file,
which describes the deprecation and fixes a typo or two in the old
NEWS fragment.

the complete set of changes from the currently checked-in allout
version is described in the attached ChangeLog.
