The points are:

- what to do if you cannot put the toolsRef locally, because the format 
does not allow to use toolsRef?
- and: if an implementation implements a data category only globally, 
why should it need to "look" for toolsRef locally?
- if you want to apply information to several documents, global rules 
are handy. But you would then not change each document to specifiy "this 
tool has set the xyz attribute", but it would be handy to provide the 
information as part of the global rule.
