Filesystem layout standard?

Is there any documentation about a standard filesystem layout?

For user data storage like music, videos etc.

On Mac OS X there are pre-define folders for Movies, Music, Pictures  
and Applications. It would save a lot of time searching with file  
dialogs if a standard was proposed for applications.

Example, an application which plays mp3s would look in Music by default.
