[SailfishDevel] harbour rejects user files in a Documents subfolder?

My checklists app got rejected by harbour again because of user data 
files :-( .
My app creates a checklistdata folder under Documents (one 
default/example data file is copied there after first start up).
Harbour doesn't want that:

"File creation in "/home/nemo/Documents/" is not allowed, if these are 
not user documents. Files should be stored in $XDG_DATA_HOME".

$XDG_DATA_HOME is silly for users:
my users must be able to copy there PC created checklist files (plain 
text) via USB to their Jolla device.
$XDG_DATA_HOME is hidden, and even if it wasn't, it is very contra 
intuitive place for normal user to find.
All users know the Documents folder.
Any harbour people, having suggestions (a $XDG_ folder would render the 
app completely useless)?
