I've asked Gian to bring this up on the usability mailing list, because
I think there should be a policy, or at least discussions on default
save locations. We have to investigate the ways people use their folder
hierarchy (was that done already?). For Epiphany, using ~/Downloads, or
~/Desktop/Downloads has proven to be appropriate, when looking how my
mother uses documents, we might rather have ~/Documents as default save
location, if the software in question was not spawned from an
interactive shell.

The long-term solution is to dump everything in ~/Documents by default,
and use document tagging for organizing the stuff, and offer
functionalities on a bunch of tagged files, like

 package everything regarding "Skyscraper Project 2005" into one tar
file and send it to foo bar com

but that's just my two cents and quiet unrelated :).
