Nothing *needs* to go anywhere.  Users *may* put anything they like, anywhere 
they like, and some users prefer not to put everything anywhere but their 
home directory.    Users who have a Documents/Files/whatever folder, very 
often still don't *want* to put everything in there.  

For what it's worth, on windows not everyone uses the preset "My Documents" 
folder for all files.  Many people don't, don't want to, or are quite happily 
using it for some things, and not for others.

Yes, I think we have all understood that you don't see the point.  That in 
itself doesn't mean there is no point, or that other people don't see it.  We 
simply don't all have the same workflow you do.
