If I purposefully use a local dynamic variable as in:

Use (defvar my-counter) at the file's top-level to indicate that this
variable is used in a way that relies on dynamic scoping.

A need to write code just to silence compiler warnings?
Emacs could do better.

Other than "code", what would you suggest?

In the precise case: just drop that warning.

In a wider sense, IMO a modular approach is better.
Restrict compiler warnings to obvious errors, don't mix style questions in.

This isn't a style warning. Often the reason is mistyping a local
variable name.

(let ((foobar ...))
    ...
    (blah fobar)
    ...)


This is another case. IIUC there was nothing wrong with the OP's example.
