My mistake.  I still remember texlive-union, which built a union
directory from its inputs — that union directory and its config file
could not be composed with other files or packages.  Propagating it
would have been pointless.

This texlive-union eventually gave way to texlive-updmap.cfg, which only
creates font map files, while propagating its inputs.  The font map
files should be usable as is, and since the inputs are propagated the
texlive-base profile hook can generate them anew (together with other
installed texlive-* packages) when needed.

So I guess this is fine after all.  Sorry for the noise!

I have applied your patch.
