+1 for upstreaming if possible. Being able to associate home
environments with a system declaration would be very helpful. I remember
someone asking about guix deploy and home environments, so it seems to
be a popular feature request.

There are edge cases where the two need to be kept in sync. (e.g.
StumpWM. The package needs to be added at a system level so login
managers see it, but configuration needs to be in the user's home.
Upgrade the system package with a new SCBL version without upgrading
your home and StumpWM will complain about compiled files being for the
wrong version.)
