Just as modifying/deleting hidden files is not the default reason why
they exist.

So all day use of a program means _using_ not configuring it - showing
these files in nonspecial cases by default would break the concept of 
delimination of the configuration and the usage part.

Moreover strange application behaviour caused by bugs is _not_ the
_default_ wanted behaviour. Therefore the "design" of the file/directory
structure used by an application is (or should be) based on ease of use
primarily - nothing else.
