well, I think I had the answer to my very own question in my post 
itself! The solution seems to be the "local processing (XML)" which 
seems to be a way to override DS-XML settings in the TO, exactly what I 

So then the question remains: Is this documented somewhere? Dmitry once 
wrote "read the manual" about that. But I cannot find any reference to 
that in the TemplaVoila ext-manual, in FTB, and neither in the TYPO3 
Core API.
