Not really. This is more of a philosophical discussion. C= was looking towards the Mac and how they handled it (without being satisfied with it IIRC).
If you see the icon for an application you should simply be able to drag it to somewhere else and magic happens in the background unbeknownst to you. That was the level of user-friendliness C= was aiming for - you and me are way too much of a power-user and perfectly able to handle and fix any missed files and directories.
Don't you remember back in the days of the 120M floptical? Mac users would innocently randomly walk around and test Macs in shops and just insert a disk and drag applications over wholesale. $10000 worth of apps coming home with you in the pocket. Now _that_ was rich. Or poor. Or something.
