The reason why it is relevant is because in the etc-overrides-lib
model you are unable to trivially merge local changes with upstream or
packaging changes unless you add additional logic in the postinst to
handle etc-overrides-lib. Having configuration files in /etc and using
ucf or similar enables you to deal with this problem easily.
