Maybe we need to have a clear description and goal for the control center?
Setting defaults for the all users isn't something i see should be in
there, but that's my view on the control center as it is now.

I implied that from your suggested solution:

"Maybe the way forward here is to work a UI for this that is more
elegant than just extra buttons. What if we had a button/combobox
combination that would let you select wether to apply locally,
globally or mandatory (of course, only if you have the privileges):

[Apply |v]

where if you click on the rightmost part of the button (the arrow),
you get a popup that lets you choose"

As I see it you want to have an "Apply" button that can change function.
