I'm not really convinced of the value of adding those folders by default. My
first instinct is to drag and drop to trash. However I do think that having
certain apps use them by default - e.g. grip ripping to music, gimp saving
to pictures and yes, firefox saving to downloads would be a good start. I
imagine this is probably the intention anyway. However I'm not sure said
apps wouldn't spit the dummy if those folders didn't exist.
