Isn't $HOME still cluttered with dotfiles?

(I'd sure like to have a separate directory (hierarchy) for my data files and 
my config files--not like ~ and ~/something, but like ~ (for one of them) and 
something else (/data or /config (or similar)) for the other.  Oh, and by 
data files, I don't mean files the system calls data (like icon files or 
whatever, I mean my data, like text files, pictures, sound files ... that I 
create or collect.)
