I'd have to agree with Martin.  While consistency is good, the reason
(IMO) why it makes sense to have the manipulator in user selected
transform space while keeping the default set global is because with
the manipulator you have a visual reference to which transform space
that you're in.  With default behavior, there really is no such
indicator outside of the selection box.  I sense that changing this
would be a cause of great user frustration.  That's just a guess,

That's all I've got.
