Well, traditional X11 handling requires the location of
  XLIBDIR(/usr/X11R6/lib/X11 for potato)/<locale>/app-defaults/,
so the new location /etc/X11/<locale>/app-defaults/ is just following
that traditional way.

And this behavior has already submitted as the patch by M. Ishikawa,
and Branden kindly used it months ago.

I can't get what is the merit of your proposal, but maybe this should
be decided at the upstream level (i.e., xfree86 in this case, or TOG)
I think.
