Storing location for a preferences file in a standalone stack?

IMHO this is just kicking the security can down the road. If all developers are required to keep their global preferences here, then instead of all the app preferences being accessible from one now restricted location, they are all available in another. What has really changed? This is what I do not get about how Apple went about this.

If this still exists and is useable as in the past, a single preferences stack in this location could be used to store individual personal preferences for multiple users if users are logging into the app, using a conditional, and global prefs if needed.
