FWIW, the manual says that "Permanent locals are appropriate for data
pertaining to where the file came from or how to save it, rather than
with how to edit the contents."

Display seems to be related more to how to edit than to where the file
came from or how to save it.

Not that that guideline is a biblical injunction, to be followed blindly,
but its characterization does not seem to apply here.  Dunno whether
it is appropriate to consider the guideline here.
