I think we have discussed this before in the kate team, but I am willing to 
take it up again. So I forward to the correct list for discussion.

Suggestion: All apps could inherit global settings, or the user could be given 
the choice (set to "true" pr default) to use a global configuration pr 
application. That would also leave this to the application developers.

Some settings, for example plugin configuration, can cause conflicts when an 
application provides functionality whic is also in a katepart plugin.
