    A good reason to save those non-file-buffers in a separate directory.

There are disadvantages to that.

If that separate directory is under the user's home dir, other people
who can edit the same file will have trouble finding it.

It could be under the same directory as the file being edited,
but that involves creating a directory for this under each directory
where you edit files.

It is a good option to offer, but I don't think it should be the default.
