I don't think it is necessary.
Just create conf files that include the same basic config options and an
individual section

# common.conf includes [Options], [Options:MPI], [UserCLasses] and
# everything else you need for your --rules
.include "$JOHN/common.conf"

Then you can use

./john --format=des --rules --conf=rules/korelogic.conf
--wordlist=wordlists/w.txt crackme/some_file

If you use the same default rules name, you can omit the section name.

The only thing that doesn't work is specifying names with wild cards to
match multiple files.
That might be tricky to implement.
