Thanks for sharing! 2 things I added for myself:

If you define a mydefault block after the default one (without strategy) those settings will be applied to all configs. So no need to repeat the 0/0 Fee part over and over.

[mydefaults]
# no strategy, so this only sets some defaults
base_fee_msat = 0
fee_ppm = 0

Another cool thing is to "block" specific node.id by public key when you don't want traffic before rebalancing when opening a ring of fire.

[high-fee-blockade]
#block specific channels with high fee (opening a ring of fire)
node.id = comma-seperated-public-keys-of-nodes-to-block
strategy = static
base_fee_msat = 10_000_000

And the chan.min_local_balance is redundant in combination with chan.max_local_balance as the first found strategy wins anyways searching top down...
