Yes, of course you're right. That's my case: single (TeX) user. I do  
that (updmap-sys) because I don't want a web2c directory in my  
personal tree, and I have my additions (fonts, maps, STYs, etc.) in  
my personal tree because I can sync very easily my laptop and desktop  
and also because I could use the same tree for local additions with  
GWteTeX, gwTeX and TeXLive.
