Yes, it can.  Simply the other ones have counter-balancing reasons
(mostly the fact that the other files usually come from random places
and just expect to be found directly in load-path.  E.g. many of the
files started in emacs/lisp before being moved to a subdirectory).

But as can be seen with CEDET, the case of lisp/term is not
inherently unique.
