Not necessarily. Now I know about this because I read on devel list,
but imagine I wouldn't, what would have happened is the day I start
gnomme instead of fluxbox I would have those directories created. And
I wouldn't have known if I was likely to screw things if I remove them.

I am not advocating doing things manually, but through file-selector
defaults.

At the expense of having directories created at the first login in
GNOME.
