Depends on whehter you believe that (some of) the 
individual level variables are intervening or 
confounding variables. Sometimes there are special
structures in your data that allow you to get some 
empirical handle on which is which, but normally
you'll just have to rely on your theory. This is 
true for -mlogit- or any other statistical analysis.
