This way the global configuration file can be used as a default which applies to all applications on a server, and the app-local file only needs to include the customisations relevant to that particular app.
For example, I have a handful of applications running on a server and the only thing that differs between them is the application names and labels. This forces me to reproduce the entire newrelic.config file for each application, and I have to propagate any other changes through every copy of the file.
