Okay, so you suggest to do nothing - neither append the includedir

That's fine :)
I was only trying to find an alternative to "let mariadb read
/etc/my.cnf.d implicitly" - because I don't like an idea of adding more
magic to the server, it has more than enough of it already.
Going back to the original idea -- it was that users will be confused if
they'll see files under /etc/my.cnf.d/* which they can enhance but it
won't take any effect. Well, adding a README file into /etc/my.cnf.d or
some comments into files in that directory or even both, that would
simply describe the need of !includedir, should just work. That
shouldn't do any harm and should reduce confusing.
