Instead of creating a big dir tree, why not just put all the different
config files (which should be named using common sense) into one dir
and maintain a text file which points the
vendor/model/version/whatever_else to the correct file?  Then you can
just grep what you're looking for.  I'm a fan of not making things
harder then they need to be, especially when it can be so simple. ;)
