FYI, there is no-littering package [1] trying to provide unified
directory structure within .emacs.d.  It follows the same idea of
unified set of abstract directory variables for different types of data:
- etc-directory
- var-directory

Essentially, it is similar to XDG directory set, but all the directories
are inside .emacs.d by default.

I think that putting things in a reasonably-names directories inside
.emacs.d can be a meaningful default, unless there is an OS-specific
standard (XDG on Linux, de-facto standard on Windows or Mac).

The question is what kind of directories are actually useful within
