Feature request: Propagating AUTOMAKE_OPTIONS

Setting AUTOMAKE_OPTIONS in a toplevel only affects the
toplevel directory's configuration, but does not affect
subdirectories configured by a configure script (I am referring to
those Makefile.ins directly generated by a, here, not
to subdirectories to be configured by AC_CONFIG_SUBDIRS).

Therefore, one currently has to set AUTOMAKE_OPTIONS in each individually, if wanting the same AUTOMAKE_OPTIONS to be
used throughout all Makefile.ams in a source-tree.

What I would like to see implemented is having a means to set
AUTOMAKE_OPTIONS (or similar) at a single, global location for a
whole source-tree. 
Eg. to let the toplevel's AUTOMAKE_OPTIONS be propagated
into subdirectory or to add some autoconf magic for this
purpose (AM_AUTOMAKE_OPTIONS(...)).

Opinions, comments?
