You -can- drag and drop folders from the list to the bookmarks list.

The good thing about the buttons is that the user can hover the pointer
on them and get tooltips.

Also, the reason why Matthew is seeing dot files in the file list is
because he, at some point in the past, told the dialog to show them to
him. The context menu you get on the folder list (gotten by right
clicking or the standard keybindings, the Menu key or Shift+F10) has a
check menu item that toggles their display.
