Hmm... it appears that this style of mode-line does have to be the first 

I've always added it to the reST documents I've created, but I've never 
used the "Local Variables:" trick.

Adding this comment to the end of the file instead of using the mode 
line at the beginning does indeed work the same::

      Local Variables:
      mode: rst

No ^L needed.

Good idea!  :)
