Personally I would be fine with /boot/home/<username>.

That's the thing here. Writing the interfaces is a walk in the park 
compared to what needs the be done under the hood to make everything work. 
Because of all the breakage to be expected, it is most likely not to be 
included into R1 either, which may be a disappointment. Mathieu, since you 
focused on writing user interfaces for logging in and configuring users, it 
looks like you need to spend a lot more time researching and discussing 
this project idea. Don't let this discourage you, though! :-D
