It's a regression though personally I'd avoid placing font-lock
directives in the local variables section and would never permit Emacs
hacking them.  It would not be overly difficult to put something like a
locally-hacked property on `font-lock-keywords' and have font-lock obey
that rather than evaluating `font-lock-defaults' but I'm afraid we've
missed this opportunity.

It should be mentioned.  Maybe Stefan can enumerate the directives that
can't be set any more.
