I agree with you.

The motivation for dir-locals-mode seems to be solely that there's some
problem in fly{make,check}-mode involving .dir-locals.

What key bindings would people want in dir-locals-mode?  What indentation
strategies, what font-locking?  Nobody's given such positive reasons, as
yet (unless I've missed a post).

And making a common ancestor for this new mode and emacs-lisp-mode would
be a Bad Thing.  It would fragment e-l-m for no particular gain.

I say there should be no such new mode.  The problems should be fixed in
fly*.el, which surely should be possible.
