Why is this risky? Because it can leave nomatch in the wrong state?
The following does not have this problem and also takes the other
settings you mentioned into account:

unsetopt_nomatch() {
	if unsetopt | grep -q nonomatch
	then	restore_nomatch() setopt nomatch
	else	restore_nomatch() :
	unsetopt nomatch
noexpand_restore_nomatch() { {
() {
	setopt local_options no_nullglob n_ocshnullglob
} $@ } always {
	unfunction restore_nomatch
} }
alias noexpand='unsetopt_nomatch; noglob noexpand_restore_nomatch '

Example usage: alias wget='noexpand wget'

It is clumsy, because the "setopt nomatch" must possibly be excluded from
the "localoptions" range; except for using an anonymous function
and passing the arguments to it, I did not find another solution...
To get correct completion for the above alias, I guess you also have to

compdef noexpand_restore_nomatch=noglob

after the initialization of the completion system.
