Question regarding many config files for single web application

I saw one web application in which there are many config files. Below code will explain you what I mean. In system.web.authorization.config file I had the code like this

<?xml version="1.0"?><authorization><deny users="?"/></authorization>

 In web.config file I had the code like this

<authorization configSource="App_Config\_BASE\system.web.authorization.config">

 My question is we can mention the authorization setting in web.config file itself . Why they have mentioned the authorization setting in system.web.authorization.config file . Thanks in advance

with regards

It is just a physical separation for maintability... Normally if you put all the stuffs in the web.config file it is tough to manage... You can create any number of files for any section in web.config and link it to the web.config file..

Configuring Multiple Web Config files in a single application
Hello,I am currently working on a web project where a customer just asked me to also implement Windows authentication for a particular directory within the application. Prior to this request the application itself was configured to allows anonymous access, with the exception of one file which has been configured to use Forms authentication. So as such in the main application's web.config file I've added a <location> tag in order to pick up the forms authentication mechanism for this file when it is accessed, forcing the user to supply their credentials. However as I...
