Over the years, I've taught or tutored over 100 Djangonauts starting their first project. Having to distinguish between two directories with the same name is a constant pain point in the teaching process - "cd into my_project ... no, the other one!"
My apologies for not starting with a discussion first. I'm an infrequent contributor to the Django codebase!

I do exactly this for every new Django project, so it's +1 from me as well.

As there are different preferences and some see the change as
worse than the default and there is already a way to change the
template for startproject, wouldn't it be easier to provide
different templates and list them in the documentation, so that
they can be used with the --template argument? With a short
section about each template and the pros and the cons, and for
what kind of project one is better suited.
Maybe the three top templates could be shipped directly with django, so that users could choose one with --template=simple, --template=nested or --template=config or something in that direction.
It is possible to do in current version of Django with two lines of code:
django-admin startproject config my_project
I have been working for many companies that use Django and I have seen that each ot them has their own structure of project.
And usually project is created once per couple of months, so I don't see advantages of changing project structure.
