Hi List, 

there are dozens of regexps that are set as buffer-local variables when
org-mode is turned on as major-mode, but other regexps are defined and
set only once as global variables when e.g. org.el is loaded, and the
docstring of these variables often reads like this:

| org-block-regexp is a variable defined in `org.el'.
| Its value is [...]
|   This variable may be risky if used as a file-local variable.
| Documentation:
| Regular expression for hiding blocks.

Why are these variables considered risky when used as a file-local
variables? Was this "risk" the prime reason to make them global - or are
they global simply because there was no special reason to make them
