I think it would be a good idea to use a substitute directory
*always*.  As a basic principle, Nautilus shouldn't pollute any
directories it doesn't own, except for the standard configuration
points ($HOME, $HOME/gnome, $HOME/.gnome-desktop).  With Nautilus 1.0,
I had the very unpleasant experience of burning a CD-ROM and finding
unwanted .nautilus-metafile.xml files all over it afterwards.

All the best,
