We have many recipes appended to IMAGE_INSTALL in our image recipes and it works just fine.
From your description, it sounds like you could go either way. I personally prefer to keep my image recipes as clean as possible, so I push as much as I can to individual recipes. This helps with debugging later on as your project (inevitably) gets more complex.
Also... Experience has shown that the following form is a lot more readable:
IMAGE_INSTALL = "recipe_1"
IMAGE_INSTALL += "recipe_2"
IMAGE_INSTALL += "recipe_3"
IMAGE_INSTALL += "recipe_4"
IMAGE_INSTALL += "recipe_5"
IMAGE_INSTALL = "\
When your repository grows large, a recursive grep for recipe_2 will make a lot more sense if "IMAGE_INSTALL += "recipe_2"" is returned instead of "recipe_2 \". The latter form gives no clue as to how recipe_2 is being referenced.
sorry about that, right now the config files are placed in the files directory of the recipe which builds the module.
