Under these circumstances it seems to be absolutely
impossible to implement your idea unless some basic
changes are applied to TeX.
Furthermore, putting together a file name such as
"french-latin1.kbc" at TeX level does not need more
computing effort than generating the path name
"french/latin1.kbc" at another level of processing,
i.e., at the level of the OS or the searching facility.
OTOH, you would require a more complicated searching
facility and there will be more degrees of freedom in the
configuration. Thus, I don't understand the advantage
of your proposal.
