I don't know enough about them to say.  At first glance, I'm not certain
whether they're configuration or not.  They seem to define who is
allowed to issue certain requests on the bus.  If these are just
defaults overridable elsewhere, then they are not config.  If the
administrator is meant to change these files to change the system
defaults then they are.  Maybe mclasen or davidz can tell us?
