Splitting innreport.conf into 2 files?

innreport.conf consists of about 50 lines of general parameters and then
of about 2400 lines for configuring what to display in the report.
I believe most users do not need to configure the display. Having it in
innreport.conf does not permit fixing possible bugs or improving it
during an INN update.
Couldn't <pathetc>/innreport.conf be split into:
- <pathetc>/innreport.conf for general parameters only
- <path???>/innreport-display.conf (or any better name) for the rest
I'm wondering what would be the better path for that other file (as it
contains configuration, it would be <pathetc> but we do not modify these
files during an update...).
Of course, a new parameter should be added in innreport.conf to specify
an alternate display file (display_conf_file "" related to <pathetc>
Any suggestion to improve that? Of course, if you also think something
should be done. The main reason I see is to permit changing the
displaying sections in releases.
I am not convinced the current way we parameter innreport is the best
thing to do. (And totally rewriting innreport is a bit of work...)
