Hi Oliver, 
I don't know if it covers everything you had in mind, but there is something like this for the molecule-specific settings (not the global settings)… see command "mcopy":


 I hope this helps,

Obviously such a feature would only apply to the atoms in common between the two models (if they are allowed to differ at all), but I feel like this would be a very handy feature to have.
