If you are flying any posh aircraft with  built in altitude alert - the one 
that dings at you as you approach 1000ft to  go to target altitude - a crafty 
dodge is to dial in 1000ft above TA rather  than your cleared level. When it 
dongs reset altimeters to 1013.25 and dial in  your cleared level.

Er, if it were a variable then presumably one could change it, unlike the  
constant it appears to be?
 
My planned gauge would warn the pilot as TL was hit in either direction, up  
or down.
