The presentation.config extends the Commerce Server configuration to control some additional functionality. The presentation.config is hierarchical in the same way as the presentationConfiguration and channel config, basically this means you can define your default in your default element and then override for different channels or brands, etc.

The presentation.config uses the notion brands with the overall idea being that you could be hosting multiple brand sites in a single web application (e.g. SharePoint or SiteCore) and so you might want some different configurations for each. You should name your brand configurations the same as your presentationConfigurations as this is how they will be loaded.
