My use of desktop.el is very simple, so I've never had that problem. I don't even use desktop files in project directories, just one in ~/.emacs.d/
But for the sessions case you point out, I would definitely create subdirectories under ~/.emacs.d/desktop-sessions/ or somesuch. Not particularly awkward, IMO.

Yes, I agree. It's something to work on, if there's interest.
