Now, me, too. :)

Right, I am too confused!!! :)

Good, I agree with that scheme.
Should driver and kernel settings be moved to /boot/config/settings? They are 
not user-specific.
IMHO, there are many apps that have cluttered my home/config folder with 
"fonts", "etc", "man", etc. Most of this can be moved to the "data" folder, but 
"man" contains documents. Do we have an app documentation folder? Be put 
binutils into some documentation folder, can we not create a 
folder-usage-guide? :)
Devs should change their apps to match our guide. I am already feeling like in 
file-hell (and dll-hell is getting hotter, too).
