I'm not aware of any "reserved" local facilities, however system
log daemons provide the syslog-facility(8) script which may be
used by packages to dynamically retrieve and set up a local
facility (eg snort does this).

There is none, at least I never saw one. I try to make msyslog
behave as much like sysklogd where it makes sense, so does
Attila Szalay (syslog-ng) it seems.
