Is it really necessary to have date-less symlinks to versions?

A few weeks ago someone sent a mail here, that download directories are
confusing. I thought, he refers to the old directories with 30-50 files,
you remember, daily snapshots of ASU and 2007.2 for both phones plus
uboot, etc... But NO! He referred to a simple directory like this (or
maybe a bit longer one):
(2008.9 -> so same problem again, that's why I bring it up again)
Date stamp will not ever change on the files in this certain directory,
so it's unnecessary to have a link to "most recent file" or whatever.
External linkers can use the full file name. Also better, because it's
more describing in the destination folders of the downloading users.
Don't _force_ users to choose, especially when there are NO choices.)
