No this isn't a good idea. When you choose to save configuration locally
it means you've alredy changed it to match your local needs and making
it global does not seem reasonable.

It is opt-in now definitely. One needs to create the local config file,
even an empty one, for gitk to choose it upon doquit/savestuff. I agree
a checkbox may be more convenient but is it "opty" (as in opt-in) enough?

Then, the checkbox should be added to both "Preferences" and "Edit View"
dialogs, anything more?

Sure, let's vote:

a) .git/gitk
b) .git/gitkconfig
c) .git/gitkrc
