If you decide to add entries, it is probably best not to add them to
updfstab.conf.default. Instead, create a new file in /etc (e.g.,
updfstab.conf.new, or updfstab.conf.date) and add another include
*after* the updfstab.conf.new entry. This way, if there is a conflict,
your entries take precedence. Then, if they don't work for some reason,
or are unneeded, you can remove the include file while leaving the
default pristine (and thereby reducing your chances of really screwing
something up).

A little lesson learned from years of breaking Red Hat... :)
