Because being able to organise your "hidden" directories reduces
complexity instead of increasing it. At this moment I have 146 hidden
directories in my home directory that I can't move to a more organised
structure which makes browsing my home dir very bad for some
applications. This is why the basedir specification tries to create
order in this realm.
