Or with KDE, or with XFCE, or with Ubuntu, or with Fedora, ...

And it speaks sense: I don't want config, data and cache in the same
dir, especially if I want to know what to exclude from a backup, or if I
don't want to have all of it encrypted, or if I don't want all of it in
my RAID1/SSD home....

The fact you don't like the name of a default doesn't mean that it's a
worthless specification. Can we stop looking at what FDO set as default
and review the code (and specifications) on the merits of the idea itself?
