The form Glenn suggested would place remember-data-directory under user-emacs-directory, which is documented to contain "additional per-user Emacs-specific files", not merely configuration files.

These are not Emacs-specific files.

 It's better to make this the default location instead of cluttering up users' home directories, especially with non-hidden files, without their permission.

It's data they've specifically entered, and a remember back-end they've specifically configured.
 
 See also bug 13870 for a recent precedent. 

The wrong solution, I think, though since the previous value was a dot-file, the new one may as well be considered Emacs-specific (although by comparison with .tagline or .project, perhaps not).
