With a dedicated "Public" folder, it is clear that it is being shared,
and you have to explicitly move the file to share it. With marking any
folder as shareable, you can forget to unshare it later (and expose new
files you put there), or you can neglect to really check that you aren't
sharing something you shouldn't before you set it to be shareable.
