Integrity through obscurity. ;) Quite a different matter.

The point is that you’re using the filesystem purely as a storage
backend, not as a data management facilty; and the opaque
structure imparts upon users that it is expected to be managed
entirely within the app, instead of doing the management half in
the filesystem and half in the app.
