We have to discuss if we want this change in the first place.  Tough decision :)

The Documents folder was added to have a way to exchange files between
Sugar and GNOME.

In the long term, we can think how to adapt Sugar datastore to the
conventional and well standarized folders (Pictures, Downloads, etc).

I don't think that just adding all of them is good.

Thanks for your work,
