10.3: Pile document icons in one location

Well sorry it's not to your liking. Thanks for calling it moronic asshole.

Imho, piling document icons is not moronic

Sticking up for ryanmathus' hint, I think a pile of freshly-downloaded document icons on the Desktop (or within any icon-view folder window) can be quite useful - it can visually segregate a new batch of "unread, unfiled" docs from those that are nicely spread out because they "permanently belong there." A pile of icons obscures its filenames, of course, but that may be appropriate - it's like a stack of papers in a (physical) inbox. It forces you to plow through it and file everything away. ;) After an hour of frenzied surfing, I may have three dozen new files on my Desktop, waiting to be moved elsewhere, while the rest of my Desktop still displays my carefully arranged "old-timers".

(Dudes, let's all refrain from words like a**hole ... but I for one will cheerfully confess to being anal-retentive! ;)
