Terminal is smart and reloads the config file if a change is detected.

But the basic idea is good. I could add an environment variable
$TERMINALRC, which would point to the location of the config file to use
for this instance (relative to $XDG_CONFIG_HOME or absolute). Jouke,
would that work for you?
