IMO that would be prohibitively expensive, hard to debug and hard to
get users to do anything useful if the system already has a list of
system configurations.

It would also not make sense without an "include" directive, since an
order of inheritance would have to be assumed / hacked through
instead.

Instead, it should be very easy to copy the system config and change a
few things for your use case on your home dir.
