When the includes/excludes/ignores/filters get unmanageable or aren't
working, maybe a simpler approach would suffice.  You aren't talking
about very many files (at least you haven't here), why not just use a
copy statement for each file, grouped by classes: very easy, very clear,
not much work for the very few files you've mentioned so far anyway. 
Has the advantage of being able to individually specify destination
modes and ownership.

If you really want to use one copy statement per class, then use
different source directories.  That makes more sense to me
organizationally anyway.

     $(config_download_dir)/etc_common/ ....
     $(config_download_dir)/etc_special/ ....
