Also the examples given are all single model ones.

O would like to define the whole spectrum of behaviour.

Including references to another mpd (sorry Travis I think this should be supported, e.g. a city made out of several houses all contained in their own mpd's)

For example what does mlcad do if you load a different model also containing a stud.dat, will all parts change or will they retain the previous version.

I'll have to do some additional research to get a better insight on the 'de-facto' way of things.

I don't understand what you mean by different rules for parts and models. The rules are the same for all files, but the directory containing the top-level file is treated as being special (being the second entry in the path lookup right after mpd-contained files).

We can come up with rules for mpds inside of other mpds.
