well, speaking of system.reg, user.reg and dosdevices/, I think they
are "generally uninteresting".
And if you mangle with them you rather want to use regedit/winecfg,
than editing them by hand. So making them hidden by default is imho
fine.(and there is still WINEPREFIX if you don't like it ;) )

The other thing is the default location for drive C:, which might be
better in a "visible" place(e.g. ~/Drive_C).
Though you can already configure that through winecfg to any path
you like.
