Ehm, since approx. two hours we don't have "global-parameters" anymore!
Yuppi!

Serious: we had this discussion several months ago to unify the
"global-parameters" with the input modules and I exactly did this:
We have a new input module "global" which can be configured in the
sitemap like the authentication handlers. The name for this
configuration is ...tata...global-variables.
