At the same time it's annoying to get externalization warnings
for things that should never be externalized. That said,
I agree local project overrides should only be used when necessary, 
and perhaps this is not necessary. Also something can be said
for keeping the rules across all the projects the same, i.e. 
always use the macros or externalize.

For me it's a coin toss. Don't even remember who was annoyed at 
the macros in the test bundles anymore. ;)

Kind regards,

    I think it makes sense to have a global configuration rather than a per
    test one to ignore the localisation string.
