I think that make sense. This is one of these discussions in which there
is no simple answer. Trying to architect a directory structure to match
all the possible combinations (now and for the future) is likely just to
make things even more complicated.
This approach is simple and makes it easy for new platforms to just drop

I do like this approach -especially if the union of directories per
platform is well documented and visible. That would really help
understand the impact when someone has to change a file in one of these
