While it might look complicated from our perspective as users, the discussions 
following up to the specification this is based on shows, that the situation is 
not as easy as one would think without looking at all the cases that need to 
be supported.

And as Ralf wrote, since there are tools that actually implement the 
specification, we usally don't need to find these folders ourselves.
But since there is a specification and not just some random set of locations we 
can if we do.
