Currently, the *Help* buffer sets the variable buffer-locally.  So
perhaps just renaming it to outline-use-buttons would make sense and
people could decide to use them in outline major mode, too.  But I
haven't tested that at all.

Yes, it's not good.  But I think that's a general problem with invisible
text (which outline uses)?  I feel like I've stumbled onto that issue
