The killer argument for it is that most of what is in $PGDATA should be
excluded from your normal filesystem backup method, because you need to
be using some database-aware mechanism for backing up the database.  But
the config files are perfectly suited for standard filesystem backup,
and indeed will *not* be covered by, say, pg_dumpall.  So putting them
somewhere else helps in creating a coherent backup strategy.
