imho the local context approach is much more logical, global stuff should be handled by prefixing extra search locations to the global order.

Since LDraw.org does not author any applications why not define specifications in a manner that support both scenarios as they are both valid? This way, application developers can decide if to support either or both approaches and LDraw.org could focus on qualifying how unofficial file load/parse under each scope should be implemented, pros, cons etc...
