For whatever it is worth, I advocate for the more universal solution and 
suggest also adding [section] headers for tool-specific configuration in 
gnupg.conf.  Allowing [TOOL:TAG] with TAG given using a command-line 
option could enable users to group common settings for different uses.

If this approach is taken, I suggest that options set before any 
[section] is reached would be global, applying to all tools in GPG; the 
log-file and keyboxd options would go in that unnamed first section.
