I've also read some of your discussion on this topic, too. Personally, I'd consider this a maybe issue of security. Nowadays Linux users don't care as much about security as server admins would do. Alas, Linux being a multi-user system by tradition should take care of "normal" home desktop users trying to migrate from proprietary realms.

You can also adjust the "wineprefixcreate" script not to create it anymore.
