Which is why I wanted to come up with a policy for the numbering.
Something simple like:

10: font directories
20: selectfont (white/black listing)
30: system rendering defaults
50: 50-user.conf
60: local default configuration
70: font aliases (75-dejavu.conf, 75-vera.conf, etc)
99: local fixups (overriding user configuration if necessary)

I think a bit of documentation (in conf.d/README) will make this
