I hate it :

1. the uppercase D is just not unixish and conflicts with
the whole file hierarchy.

2. it's an i18n nightmare

3. you'll have to explain to new users why they have a
different unix and gui home. The notion of a special
directory is difficult enougth without duplicating it

Just create a subdirectory and drop you old home contents
into it. Have an option to hide all .files on the desktop
root. I really don't see why a mess isn't a mess when it's
not on the desktop. What I see is that two home roots is
very very bad.
