miktex uses every updmap.cfg it finds. Together with the fact that
in miktex it is easy to "mount" additional texmf trees one can make
self-contained texmf trees of e.g. non-free fonts or local packages.
To use such a tree I only have to add it and then run updmap once. I
don't have to enable various maps (and to remember the names of the
maps) or to merge an local updmap.cfg with the one in the
UserConfig-root of miktex. 

Currently my updmap parses 4 updmap.cfg (including the global) but
the number varies.
