Actually it has to be sent to the server when saved, because if someone else access the computer to run the program it must be available, but if it's only in my client until I execute it, it might not be.

In all honesty I think a lot of these problems are not mojangs fault but the mod developers. They started with single player mods and then converted them to multiplayer with as little effort as possible. While that may work, it will compromise both network efficiency (sending data as if it was all on a single cpu) and server command structure (server and client not correctly separated).
