I'd go further -- don't even create the network domain unless a tool,
library, framework, or application wants to be installed there, and even
then only create the directories needed for it.

If it exists, use it.

For that matter, don't create anything in Local either, again unless
something gets installed there, because there's no need for empty
directories just sitting around.
