    I have some elisp rules for deciding which fonts I should use in the buffer (journal files vs code files vs prose vs notes vs etc.). Also colors — blue modelines for personal files and red modelines for work-related files. And for files that will get published publicly I will highlight certain words (similar to writegood-mode). And I use different default browsers for different projects. Different indentation rules for different folders. I have lots of little things like that.
