Nesting paper blocks

Hello all,

I have my paper variables split up across separate files. Depending on the project I am working on, I need to include several of them. paperGlobal is always included, paperSize depends on the paper size I want to produce, and paperCategory depends on what type of project I am working on. I can use paperGlobal from inside paperSizeX, but to allow for flexibility it is not possible (or at least desirable) to nest them further and use paperSizeX inside of paperCategoryX.
See the commented line below for what I am trying to achieve, which is not possible. Is there any way to inject the content of a variable directly into the paper block like I am trying to do there?

\version "2.20.0"

paperGlobal = \paper {
  indent = 0

paperSizeOne = \paper {
  line-width = 10 \cm

paperCategoryThree = \paper {
  system-system-spacing.basic-distance = 30

\paper {
  % \paperCategoryThree

\relative c' {
  c1 \break
