So some levels add, but others override?  My brain hurts!

No, but by making overriding the default, addition is easy:
    target_LDFLAGS += -foo
And not exactly unprecedented, either :-)

I think both addition and overriding should be possible at all
levels.  Otherwise, whichever way a given level is hardwired,
it'll frustrate some users who want it the other way; and unless
all levels are hardwired the same way, it'll confuse and
frustrate *most* users.

It must be said that they would have sounded better if the singer
wouldn't throw his fellow band members to the ground and toss the
drum kit around during songs.
