Our very own Matt has had a problem with this in OSX:


It is more of a way that Mac handles things than being a problem. 

I can't see changing the structure of WP as it is (a vast majority of other programs out there have folders that are combinations of user/core files - ie: drupal, smf, phpbb). Actually Wordpress is one of the best for keeping core files/user files separate.

The very first step in the Codex for upgrading states: 

> Step 1: Backup Database Tables and Files including .htaccess

This should always be followed. I even follow it on Windows and *nix systems. Always better safe than sorry.
