It's not that simple, it's a list and the list has to be defined in total or you would have to learn how to do list merging with Spring to separate out part of the list in a separate bean (and order is still a part of the processing model so the merging would have to be well-defined).

Simply put: I would largely stop using overrides. Use metadata and tags to do most of what you're doing in them, and if you really want to apply separate rules outside of the metadata, use metadata filters. You can define filters in separate files now as well, which means there could be a prod vs. dev filter file too.
