I don't understand why you say "an admin may no longer
freely synchronize the conffile"?
At least texmf.cnf of our system might be the most standard
one in the world, even if a user added local modifications
through correct way as update-texmf provided.
As I wrote in former email, other systems, like FreeBSD
and/or RedHat, might use non-standard texmf.cnf because of
lack of an appropriate tool but then there is no need to
synchronize with them, IMHO.
