I'm already considering adding two types of AVPs:
    - script avp - not attached to any transaction they will leave only 
during a route - excellent to perform temp operation in script without 
carrying about sync, removing them, etc....
    - global avp - which will be visible everywhere in OpenSER, for all 
messages - they will be used to control overall behaviour of OpenSER and 
they will be provision via external cmds or DB table - something like 
gflag for flags.

you can see script AVPs as a particular case of global AVPs (limited 
life time) and may be skipped :).

The only issue here is know to specify the AVPs in order to make 
distinction between the AVP types in their specifications....which is 
global and which is per transaction and so on....
