Since this is calibre's database it can't be inconvenient it just is. This area is off limits to users.

You have complete freedom of choice. You can sort your books within the calibre library GUI view 9 ways from Sunday. Also the user can decide exactly how they would like to export their books. The Save to disk feature gives you complete flexibility to create whatever folder / file name structure you want outside of calibre's database.

Calibre gives the user total control on how to export the books, Go crazy.

Calibre is a program that doesn't care how you want to sort your books in your world but within the confines of the calibre database / folder structure it will sort them in a way consistent with its needs. This file structure is the cost of doing business, it might be best if you just don't look under the hood. Nothing to see here, please move along.

The developer is aware of folks not being able to deal with seeing the inner workings of calibre. The best advice I can give you is don't look.
