Well, you're supposed to put the configuration files in ~/.config, not mess up the home directory with your own ~/.ardour*

Well, this is the free desktop pseudo standard and it would be nice if applications started following it.

You're supposed to read the $XDG_CONFIG_HOME variable to decide where to store the applications configuration files. Not all applications does this, as you've demonstrated, but this pseudo standard is supposed to help us achieve some consistency and order.
