That was a comment from Stefan Urbanek. GNUMail, for instance, stores
application specific files in .../Library/GNUMail

If you had a lot of applications that did that, pretty soon your Library
directory would but full of these.

That also goes for the Specific directory..., you don't solve it with a
seperate directory.
But if you want to keep it, a name change would make it more clear,
something like ApplicationsLibrary would make it more clear.

On MacOS X, ~/Library/Application Support/ is used for this. It keeps the Library directory from getting confusingly full.
