Base Directory Spec Intended Purpose

Greetings, list.

I have a question about the purpose of the base directory specification. 
  Is it reserved for the use of other XDG specs, or is it something that 
XDG is encouraging independent developers to use as well?  That is, is 
it intended as a general solution to the 'problem' of many hidden 
directories in a user's home directory?
