Access configuration store from SOE

I have a custom SOE which needs to access custom site properties, i.e. properties which are site wide and not specific to the particular instance of the SOE/map service.

I was thinking that it might be nice to simply add these to the site wide configuration store.  Maybe I could create a new subdirectory which might hold custom site information.

I also know that I can get the location of the configuration store via REST.  The problem is that I am running in the context of the SOE and, to the best of my knowledge, it does not know this.  Just wondering if anyone has any thoughts with regards to how to find out the location of the configuration store from an SOE.  ArcGIS Server clearly knows this information.

I am also interested if anyone has thoughts with regards to how best to handle this problem.  The thing that I was trying to avoid is having users configure information on every machine in the site.  I am thinking about how to make this easily for cloud deployment.
