I happen to agree with that sentiment, but Wine creates ~/.wine/drive_c and configures it as C:, for the sake of all common users this is correct.
To force C: to be a fixed drive is not harmful in any case I can think of.
It does not help if you set up wine with an installation in another drive letter, but that is a separate issue.
