Well, we all work with what's best for our workflow.  Personally I have my 
most-used directories (including remote ones) in dolphin's Places, which of 
course makes them also show up in several other applications.

For instance, I regularly buy machine-control patterns over the internet.  
Most things that I download are stored in ~/Download, but for these I want 
them to go to safety on my server (thus ensuring backups).  When I'm given the 
option to open with Ark or save, the remote directory is among the available 
places.  It saves effort, but more importantly, avoids me forgetting to get it 
backed up.
