    $HOME/texmf to $XDG_DATA_HOME/.local/texmf

Moving the default for TEXMFHOME, et al., to anywhere outside $HOME is
such a radically incompatible change, against user expectations, that I,
for one, would not consider it.  Hence, my reply stands :).  If it is
useful for others to follow that document, great, they can go for it.
