No, TextMate’s behavior here is pretty deterministic ;)

This is twofold, as a bundle creator you should not shelter your bundle 
from external settings. The user may have good reason to inject settings 
into your bundle’s scopes.

As an end-user, you can disable the indented soft wrap settings that we 
have in the default bundles. This needs to be done once, and that’s it 
(see earlier thread). When we review bundles, we ensure that all items 
are scoped so that they are only active for the bundle’s language, 
unless of course it’s meant to be global, e.g. the recent Merge 
Markers bundle.
