    Can't we have our cake and eat it too?

    I mean why not have both?

    The subsystem that you currently plan to parse the /etc/fstab.d/ will
    intelligently add the /etc/fstab.d/ entries to /etc/fstab before
    actually processing and mounting /etc/fstab.

    So the rpm guys have their /etc/fstab.d/ convenience and the rest
    of the ABI is kept intact. (If you can't bit them join them)

    Since /etc/fstab is hand edited as well. There are lots of smart
    things that can be done like a remark (#) marker at the end of the
    file that all /etc/fstab.d/ entries get to be added after. (And
    a comment for the user) and some smart duplicate removal of, and
    so on ... Even a marker per line added.

    Just my $0,017
