Sure, in the common case it'll work fine. But in principle someone
could have written 82-my-own-rules.rules file, and now it has lower
priority than the new config file.

The rules files - their priority, naming, and semantics - form an
interface which must be kept stable (or versioned in a meaningful way)
like the programming interfaces and the D-Bus interfaces.
