.htaccess is written to, if nothing else.  If write access is the problem,
the fix could be to reference wp-std-content if wp-content does not exists.
We could probably put such a rule in .htaccess.  Though I think a core code
solution would be better.

I'm not so sure this issue really needs to be fixed, as it has not caused
problems even up to this point.  But if a fix must be made, an objective for
that solution should be that it not lead to more harm and confusion than
what the original issue caused.

So, solutions that break a bunch of plugins, for a bunch of users, seem to
be inappropriate if fixing the issue for a very limited number of servers is
the main pay off.

Something to keep in mind...
