Sounds good.

Well, "confined within the context package" - I'm not sure what this
means.  I haven't investigated, but usually if kpathsea searchs a
directory (fonts/map/dvipdfm/), it will also search subdirectories, no
matter how they are called.

But since the contents of the files are generated from the current
information, I don't see any danger here.
