Yes. Currently, there is no way to do the latter; a global minor mode is not
overridden locally. This would be a possible new feature.

Yes. The advantage of that would be that it would avoid using C-u. The
disadvantage would be that it would be a separate command.

You might be right that that would be simpler. I assume that it would act
just like foo-mode does wrt turning on and off explicitly (i.e. with a
prefix arg).
