This is request for the WG members to vote on requiring all defaults
apps/components in the workstation installation be compliant with the xdg
base dir spec.
This is more or less the current status already with very few but high
profile components including Firefox and NSS. They could be grandfathered
in for now with a time limit for them to be compliant. If more apps were
compliant with the spec, it helps in maintenance of the system, especially
backups. It would also help convince upstreams to take this spec more
seriously if a major distribution requires it.
