Well, then the vdr has a third category of conf files:

 - Files, that are written without user interaction

and such files are *definitely* *not* config-files, even if they have conf-
extension. Some folks called such conf-files databases.
Handle the writing of conf-files by user interaction (OSD or replacements) 
could be wrapped by a write-enablement-script or function, so config-files could 
stil reside on RO-media.

From my point of understanding, the FHS discussion is not focused on the 
config-files, that could not be managed by OSD, but is focused on the point, 
when config-files are written.

kind regards
