As you know, the directory structure can be any arbitrary way we choose 
to structure it.  Just seems that separating the samples from the system 
applications is a logical dividing line.  Users that want to experiment 
and rebuild the samples in the source tree will quickly understand this 
distinction. Don't want folks playing with the system applications 
unless they really know what they are doing..  So, it is really just a 
better way to show this distinction.
