probably we can also find a simpler concept for make local
configuration available with global configration files
like we have done in z3c.baseregistry. This could have the
benefit of both local and global done with the same pattern
e.g. zope.configuration.

I think global and local ist not so confusing, but the need
to define global and local configuration in a totaly 
different way is complex to explain and understand.
