I simply followed existing practice that I found in Emacs.  FWIW I
think it would make sense to make this a customizable setting used
everywhere that "~/.emacs.d" is currently used.

Does Aquamacs have a setting for this?  package.el could conditionally
use that.

This (the customizable setting) has been discussed before[1], and I even
offered to go find all the hardcoded ~/.emacs.d/ usages, but there wasn't
much evident interest.  Is there now, especially given the issue of
differing standards among OSes?

Sounds like a good change to me.
