Cool. I've reorganized that version a bit further...
scripts/ farm private read-only core
wikilib.d/ farm  read-only core
local/ field private read-only local
cookbook/  private read-only local
farmconfig.php farm private read-only local
wiki.d/ field private read-write local
temp.d/ field private read-write local
files/ field? private? read-write ? [ See note ]
pmwiki.php farm public read-only core
pub/guiedit/ farm public read-only core
pub/skins/  public read-only local
pub/css/ field public read-only local
pub/cache/ field? public read-write local
uploads/ field public read-write local

I think pub/cache/ is reasonable. Most publicly cached information
tends to be images or css files where the url isn't commonly seen

I think that files/ is essentially the same as temp.d/ .
At any rate, my intent for the "work directory" (that started
this thread) has been that it be a place where recipes and scripts
can store persistent data... so I don't think we need an extra
such directory. (And if we do need such a directory, that's
another argument for having a separate writable directory to
contain wiki.d/, temp.d/, files/, etc.)

I would think that skin-generated/modified CSS files should
go into pub/cache/ . For example, this is exactly what
the CSSInWikiPages recipe does.
