Bottom line, if an app wants access to the ~/Documents directory, it
should *say so*.

Makes sense, for sure. It's part of the app logic.

Perhaps, but if you launch an application and they try to store a file
from it and the directory that opens is the /bin directory where the
code is stored (a directory that you probably don't have write
permission for) I don't think that you would be very happy.

No one does that. Programs in /bin are in the K menu. And even if not,
they are in $PATH which means you can also run them with ALT+2.

However, running a program in your home directory happens from time to
time, and you do have write permissions there.
