Yes, in order to do this as simply as possible, the 'global' table would 
need to follow the structure of the catalog's products table, at least with 
regards to critical fields (sku, description, price, etc), would need to be 
configured as an Interchange database table with a Database directive, and 
would need to be listed as one of the ProductFiles in catalog.cfg.
