I seen that the history behind the name choice has already been
discussed, so I won't bother again.
I have an alternate suggestion:
* move all the existing `template' /etc/*.conf to /etc/default/*.conf
* change each of the *.conf files to something like:
-- /etc/rc.conf --
# Read in defaults. Add local overrides below.
if [ -r /etc/default/rc.conf ]; then
# Set to YES once you've added your local defaults
# Add local overrides below
* update the manual pages as appropriate.
