Many skin designers will want to include extras with thier skins. Things like icons, A matching splash screen, or even a matching desktop theme, along with install directions. Package designers want to add a zipped file of XUL changes. Adding an options directory would give them a standard place for the extra goodies. This would be chrome/skins/skin-name/options. For Modern and Classic this would only contain a text file stating the purpose of the directory. Designers will be adding extras. Different designers will add them in different places if there isn't a standard location. An options folder will insure that users won't have to look for them like Easter Eggs.
