That sounds like the correct solution to me, fwiw.

Installing /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/10-nvidia.conf with the package
will perhaps cause a one-time "wtf" moment for someone installing it,
but that's easy to document in README.   Basically, from then on, if
someone does not prefer that config file's contents, then it can be
overridden in /etc/X11/org.conf.d/10-nvidia.conf
