I don't agree with this principle, not in this general form.  (The "in
a directory owned by another user" part, to which I think I agree, as
written, was not a qualification for this general statement, so it
doesn't count for the purposes of the principle itself.)

As just one random example of what Emacs "should never do", we write
the customizations to a file "without the user's explicit request".
