For anyone following this discussion, I moved the non-dir-local parts to:

bug#15658: Easy way to make a file-local variable also permanent-local
bug#15659: Simple method for preserving minor-mode

Right. So it looks like a patch for moving dir-local setup to
after-change-major-mode-hook is in order. Where I fall down in the
implementation is figuring out what exactly changes so that I don't
change behavior for find-file or kill-all-local-variables, and also
don't set dir-locals twice when opening a file (without using
defadvice which seems wrong in the core). Plus I'd have to get started
as a contributor. Neither are insurmountable, though I think I don't
have much more time to devote to these at the moment.
