I personally love to have as much configuration as possible in /etc/rc.conf and don't like to have a myriad of files sitting around. I hope that /etc/conf.d is not starting that :-)

Anyways, my suggestion would be, to first parse /etc/conf.d/* right at the beginning of /etc/rc.conf - somehow as defaults - and then let the admin (who wishes so) change things in /etc/rc.conf

Sounds fine to me. conf.d parsing has been moved to the top of rc.conf in initscripts 0.5-3.
