On this matter I am in agreement with you. I use personal home partitions and some of these are now encrypted. As more and more partitions are added, this could get quite messy.

Can you provide the bug numbers for your requests? Could be worth referencing for new RFE's.

I think that this could be an issue with people wanting hidden directories when travelling with laptops, especially when crossing boarders.
