So you should minimise the per-architecture and per-flavour

The default order of precedence, ignoring featuresets, is:

debian/config/$deb_arch/config.$flavour    [highest]
debian/config/config                       [lowest]

Additional files can be included if there's a need to share overrides on
a different level, e.g. debian/config/armel/config-reduced
