I propose to only list the local bibliographies, if defined, and to return the global bibliographies otherwise.  I think the user needs a way to override the global setting if necessary.  For example, when I work on a manuscript, I’d like to use that manuscript’s dedicated bibliography, but ignore my global bibliography.  It’s very common to work with dedicated bibliographies IME, and the UI of oc-basic doesn’t show from which bibliography an entry is coming.  So there’s no way to reliably select entries from just the dedicated/local bibliography.

Sure, that’s always possible.  However, my suspicion is that users in the majority of cases want /just/ the local bibliography when they specify one.  If true, a better default would be to only return the local bibliography.  Personally, I can’t think of a use case where you would like to use a mix of multiple bibliographies, local and global, especially where there is no way to see from which bibliography each entry is coming.  What about duplicates, for instance, i.e. entries that exist in multiple bibliographies?
