Just my 2 cents about this, I'm just a "lambda" user, and such
directories would be a good thing for me. I wonder just : what for is
the translation needed ? Just for GUIs I think. If Fedora targets mainly
"lambda users", the use of console shouldn't be a focus. I think someone
able to use the console, would be able to understand "Documents",
"Mails", "Pictures", and so on, even if he (or she) is japanese. So why
not don't care about the physical name, and why not just use the same
system MacOSX use, i.e. translate only for GUIed applications?

Make these directories as default directories like explained by someone
(alan cox iirc) for widely used applications would be a good thing, off
course for my personnal case.
