The local-only part is often not necessary, if the user can undo
everything in his normal configuration file. For example, if the
global file only ever sets some variables (instead of, say, printing
messages to the screen), then there is no need for a local-only
configuration file.

In some cases, however, it would be nice to prevent the global
file from being used.
