The user.

That's ugly because the user will have to add this to the init file in
order to not being bothered about when opening a file.  In addition I
don't expect too many users reading the manual.

The first suggestion for calling minor mode functions for minor mode
variables in a local variables section used
`hack-local-variables-hook' IIRC.  But there were problems with this
approach.  Unfortunately those are not documented.
