Yes, thats reasonable. But it explains nothing to an user, searching for
an instant idea what this directories on his own computer mean. My point
is the directory name should be at most descriptive. If someone searches
on the computer she/he should simply look at directory names and get an
idea. There are tousands of directories. No normal user tries to

the current directory layout and it dont belong to the first question:
"art-supplies" or something alternative.
