 After reading between the lines... how exactly do you picture these
 packages (tetex & Co.) achieving this:

    - Use ucf to avoid pushing users to the ghetto
    - Use only /etc/texmf/texmf.cnf (instead of /etc/texmf/texmf.d/...)
    - Conform to policy

 I'm not saying these are necessarely incompatible with each other, but
 I don't think it's straighforward.  Maybe the second point is something
 you don't actually have in mind...
