what about specifying paper size, layout, global staff size, etc. in a 
separate file, say, and \include it at the very beginning of the 
actual score file?  This file would then serve as a kind of (very 
primitive) style sheet.  You still could override e.g. global staff size 
immediately after the \input in the score file.

What I could imagine to be useful is a command line option for including 
an additional file (like the above at the very beginning of the 
score file.  Still, even that should be already possible by (abusing) the 
-i option: just say "-i" and put '\input ""' at the very 
beginning of the file (untested).
