I think you will find this is something that matters to a lot of people. It is completely inconsistent that directories should keep using different names and name formats the whole time, and it should be rectified. I frequently have up to 10 different builds unzipped so I can find exactly when regressions started - having to muck about with different folder names and locations really makes my life difficult when I need to automate stuff with sortcuts to builds, profiles, directories etc. It IS NOT a massive fix, and I think it is worth just getting some stability. Mozillazine has started a discussion of this at http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?t=54676 I suggest it is worth reading.
Yes, this is fairly trivial, but wouldn't it be trivial to fix as well? Inconsistency hurts acceptance.

No, because those who use the zip builds would have to change directories again, and go through changing related paths and shortcuts and perhaps windows registry entries. At this point firefox is standard and it's best not to change it.
