I am a fan of this. My normal users would delete these files to often 
And I have to recover them from backup.

To me it is the other way around. As I sync the home directory to the 
server on every logon/logoff I hate all the cache stuff floating in 
the home directory in several directories.

If they only could use .cache a the only folder for cached data this 
would be really great. With this I could exclude .cache from syncing 
and off it goes.
