In .NET the convention is to have a <APPNAME>.exe.config file that lives at the same level as the <APNAME>.exe

And that would be great if this was the only config file. But we also have 30 other config files that are all .xml. As such I think we should just stick with soemthign like DefaultSettings.xml And all our default settings should be in there.
