Request for Comments/Standards update suggestion:

I would like to suggest a ".log" directory in the $HOME directory like the 
".cache" directory.
The ".log" directory would be a good place for all the log, history and recent 
files which litter the $HOME directory or fill up unnoticed in some config 

Examples for files which would be good candidates for placing in this ".log" 


to name only a few.

Maybe even cookie files like
etc. would fit into this directory.

Suggestions welcome ;-)
