I agree with Marco that this is not a good idea. Not only because /etc
has already too many files, but also because this would force him to change
the manual in a radical way, and would make his work of updating the package
from upstream much harder.

Modifying your own /etc/Muttrc so that it sources /etc/Muttrc.local
seems a much better solution to your problem. If the problem is that
you have to do this in a lot of computers, consider using scp.

[ In either case, *wishlist* bugs are not to be reopened again and again
  once the maintainer has told you he thinks it's not a good idea ].
