In general, when one clicks into a directory, they want to see something
inside it (i.e. they're looking for *a* *file*).  There's no additional
inference that says they need the prior directory/directories to remain
open at the same time.  I'd say it's far more likely that they don't,
particularly if they're drilling down through several directories.  It's
more practical to use a hotkey to make your new directory open in a new
window, on demand, rather than by default.

You wonder if people making these decisions actually make any
observations about how others use computers.
