This probably needs to be mentioned though in the welcome guide.  So
if developer's are reading up on how they should be writing their
software they will understand that this is something that is "subject
to change soon".

If I understand correctly, if developers do it the right way, it doesn't matter what the folders are named, as there are variables provided by the system. It should be part of the developer documentation, which AFAIK right now is the BeBook and a link to the dev page of haiku-os.org.
Just finddir B_COMMON_ADDONS_DIRECTORY (for example): it says /boot/common/add-ons on Haiku and /boot/home/config/add-ons on other systems. :)
