You can even skip that curse by pointing out in the install file that 
they need to change the permissions.  This was my 3rd and smoothest 
drupal install yet, so it particularly annoyed me.  ;p  There should be 
no warnings like that out of the box.

I think the reason that they don't give a default files directory is 
perhaps safety...  technically, the way it is now, you can put files 
wherever you want.  It may not be desirable to have everyone put it in 
the same place.  Even so, it seems to be required, so it should be in 
the install text.  :)
