To have a variable would be enough for most purposes I can think
of. It surely is enough for gamegrid.

Another thing, BTW, that should be buffer-local rather than frame
local is the frame parameter `cursor-type'. I am mainly thinking of
the ability to turn the cursor off via 

(modify-frame-parameters nil '((cursor-type . nil)))

gamegrid.el provides a function that turns the cursor off in XEmacs. I
have not enabled this, of course, because it should only apply to the
game buffer.

[Other cases where I, as a User, would like to turn the cursor off are
dired or the *Group* and *Article* buffers in Gnus. I'd prefer to use
the line highlighting facility provided by `hl-line-mode' to select
