Maybe the config files are in TEXMFCONFIG on purpose because TeXworks
is work in progress and things might change in the future.

Anyway, whenever TeXworks config files are matured and file formats
are frozen, they can be installed in TEXMFHOME and will remain there

If config files are copied over automatically, you'll certainly miss
all additions made in a newer release.  I'm not sure whether this is
desirable at this stage.  Before you copy an old config file over, you
should probably check whether the newer one supports new features.

And as Andreas said, new versions of TeXworks appear only once a year.
Hence you're not bothered with such things frequently.

Of course, when everything is frozen it makes sense to install the
files in TEXMFHOME.

Microsoft isn't the answer. Microsoft is the question, and the answer is NO.
