What is the advantage of doing
this instead of just using the tried and tested extensions directory?
What stops a new user from plopping the folder into the extensions

Stephan has already replied to this, but I'll also note that I can't think of a
single example of a software project that has both skins/themes/whatever and
extensions/plugins/whatever, does not handle installing them by itself (that is, you have
to copy over some files in most cases), and treats both of these types of things in the
same way. I don't see why would anyone make such a mistake.
