How are they broken? The only thing I can see that is possible to break
is if some application hardcodes ~/Desktop. Of course, thats already
broken since gnome has a config option to use $HOME as desktop and KDE
has a general config option for where to put the desktop directory.

If you don't log in through a gui then xdg-user-dirs-update won't be run
(unless you manually run it). This is not a problem and shouldn't affect
anything (except you won't get the default dirs if you never run it).
Everything should keep working as it is right now.
