Question concerning the TeX-policy

Hi all!

As I am again working on texlive/debian I have some questions concerning
the TeX-policy:

What is the rational behind putting all the .map files into
/etc/texmf/map/... as they are static and will not be changed. Only
their inclusion into the the generated map file is configurable.

Another question: The policy states (4.1.1):
 ... and have them registered by putting a configuration file with
extension .cfg into /etc/texmf/updmap.d/ and calling update-updmap
--quiet ...

I don't see any of these .cfg files in tetex-base and tetex-bin from
experimental. Are tehy all *generated* by the postinst scripts, and if
yes, why?

How do these .cfg files look like? dvips .cfg +foo.map or so?

Best wishes and thanks a lot
