Splitting of ephemeral data seems to have a benefit, the rest seems more like rather noisy busywork to me.
People accidentally blowing away pg_clog or pg_xlog is a pretty common occurrence, and I don't think there's all that many tools that reference them. I think it's well worth renaming them.
I actually like the idea of re-organizing everything too. It would be easy to include a tool that puts symlinks in place to all the original locations if you need that.
