Wouldn't registry setting telling the other apps e.g. where the bookmarks file is be much better?

Separate apps should use separate settings!

What if app-X uses the profile of app-Y, but the user only wants to install app-Y and not app-X? It is probably possible to then have app-X create the profile of (the non-existant) app-Y, but *why*? A separate profile with interconnection via registry seems much more clear and, most of all, correct.
