I think that /etc/xul-ext/ is more consistent with our naming scheme.
Every package needs only one config file. Therefore I suggest to put the
file into /etc/xul-ext/PACKAGE.js, where PACKAGE is the package name
with xul-ext- stripped away (for example adblock-plus).
asac suggested  to put an empty file in /etc and link it from the
preferences directory. This will give the admins the ability to reset to
