The alias .conf I am currently not automatically activating, though. Comments??

Well, fair enough. The 35 Postscript core fonts are generally expected in Type 1 format and the alias.conf file will map them to the Tex-Gyre fonts in Opentype format. However, I think for fontconfig-using applications this shouldn't be a big deal and things definitely look better in some situations (e.g. web pages requesting to get rendered in Helvetica look awefull when the browser falls back to the Type 1 Nimbus Sans L). So, I think it's a conservative but reasonable choice - whereas enabling the alias.conf would be reasonable as well. ;)
