Comment (by nacin):

 You do have one option: To avoid the hierarchy entirely and write your own
 handling that includes subdirectories. (That's basically what you'd be
 doing anyway.)

 I agree SergeyBiryukov. Let's not complicate the template hierarchy,

 It's not just about personal levels of OCD — it is also about how easy it
 is for a WordPress user or beginning developer to understand a theme when
 they first open it up. Despite all of the variations in theme development,
 the theme hierarchy is a strong, important, and recognizable foundation.
