Very few users need to look up help for an application that:

* has never been launched AND
* has never been manipulated or even seen in the Finder AND
* is not in one of the "well-known" app dirs


But then AppFolders won't work well in Linux. There are lots of users who will launch the app from the commandline, or from a file manager that doesn't support "AppFolder installation".
