Well... it could reside in a '/var/www'  location... could it not?

Such a location would make it easy for users to share the content from 
one server to
multiple computers, and is standard across distributions.

It's also, somewhat, less of a security risk, if my assumptions are

Though a symlink to 'content' in each user's "/home" would, perhaps, be 

Just food for thought.
