Please remember maintainer time is limited. There are often edge cases for one
user as well for a software as flexible as Org.

I produce all of my professional documentation for customers in Org to Latex and
PDF. I create a directory for each document where all the files go, and so I
expect my .org, .tex, and .pdf files to be in the root of that directory. I will
sometimes add subdirectories for small files (images, source code, etc) that I
include in the final document. Which sounds like opposite the scheme you are

This may also come from my history of code management, makefiles, etc.
