Agreed. I've gotten the feeling from developers in #wordpress that  
most WP users are end users uploading their blogs to a hosting site  
via ftp.  Moving away from fixed directory structures (the location  
of wp-content for example) have been met with either silence or just  
simply unpopular. Thanks for bringing this to light, now I know I'm  
not alone.

Btw, I've (successfully) transformed WP into a multiple blog format  
(I have multiple tables for each blog, but it can easily be  
configured for different databases).All the modifications can be  
implemented at the plugin level, with the exception of theme  
validating which unfortunately is still an existing trac (#2747).
