I'd rather not use them in this case.

Thanks! I'm now using this approach, and it works well. The only
drawback for me is that I have to "pollute" the included projects' org
files with a line like this:

#+SETUPFILE: ~/.emacs.d/org-templates/level-2.org

Ideally, I'd like to have that information inferred, or at least
external to the included projects, as they should not have to "know" at
which location they are used. You don't know about a trick how to get
around this? I'd also be willing to write some elisp to that end...
