You could use the same trick that module('name',package.seeall) uses.
This creates a module and uses setfenv to make it the current
environment, but package.seeall adds a metatable to this table with
__index set to _G so that any unknown values will be looked up

So, your table will only contain level-specific stuff, and it will
still be able to access global stuff.
