The rationale is consistency.

Those directories are created by kubuntu installer, so we should make
use of them and create shortcut in dolphin.

If we leave user an empty home without any directories (like most
other distributions do), then it is okay to leave dolphin as default.
This can be an option: just remove those directories in installer.

It really is no point to create those directories while kubuntu do not
make any shortcut to use them.
