Why should games be treated differently that other applications?  Ie, why 
not just put stuff under $XDG_DATA_HOME ?

You mentioned "but there's also obvious
advantages to having saved games in their own folders.", but I don't see any 
obvious advantages (and some disadvantages, including the possible 
proliferation of proposals for more $XDG_<some_new_kind_of_app>_DIR using 
similar logic).
