Generally settings should be machine (host) independent, but e.g. the  
font smoothing preference may depend on your current hardware display  
(e.g. sub-pixel anti-alias is not available for CRT displays) and is  
therefor stored as “only for this host”.

This appears to be implemented by storing the host-specific  
preference as ByHost/«regular app identifier».«host id».plist.

This would be useful in an environment where different machines boot  
using a shared user folder.
