Local variables for editors

I'm not sure if this has been discussed before, but I find these local
variables in C, H and other files a bit strange and bloated:

 * Local variables:
 * tab-width: 4
 * c-basic-offset: 4
 * End:
 * vim600: noet sw=4 ts=4 fdm=marker
 * vim<600: noet sw=4 ts=4

Is there any chance to start omitting them and use a single
..editorconfig file instead or is this something that is a must have in
C projects of today?

Thank you for some clarification on this :)
