These issues are intrinsic to "special-cased folders," not to how they
are translated. In other words if you have a special folder for sharing
or for desktop, then you get these kind of effects.

So I would take this as an argument to avoid special folders (maybe only
have ~/Desktop) rather than as an argument about how to localize them.
