OK, I think we agree that this would be a good thing.

The contentious point seems to be what we should do until we have such
a library.  I think that it is better to update hardcoded strings to
use xdg.el, since it will make the above idea easier to implement.

However, if we have a plan for a higher-level API in a reasonable
time-frame (for example, before Emacs 29 is released), then I am more
than happy to accept that we might as well wait with any such changes
until that work is done.
