Fontconfig is system-wide too and fontconfig rules have many inter-rule

There is no way a .d setup can handle conflicts, other that making
crystal-clear what the ordering of config files is, and stating that the file
with the highest order wins

(and actually this is no different from a single monolithic config file since
the same directive can occur multiple times there too and only one of those
instances will be taken into account)
