Comment(by dd32):

 > sounds complicated to me. why not let core upgrade use the correct
 location firsthand?

 Because that IS The correct location.

 The WordPress package has to be unpacked to ABSPATH.

 However, The package contains files whose path is set to wp-content/

 In the event that the content directory is moved, One of 2 things are

  1. Less Complicated: Copy the files to the new location afterwards
  2. More Complicated: Intrduce some Directory rewriting in the copying
 process to redirect wp-content/ to WP_CONTENT_DIR and wp-content/plugins
 to WP_PLUGIN_DIR, etc

 The core upgrade IS using the correct location, Its just that the paths
 may vary within, and as such, more complicated approaches are needed.
