They have a packing format so that they can push integrated games/dlc/patches, it makes sense. The Origin approach you mentioned is that way because they can't without doing it similarly to Steam. Both have pros and cons. Honestly I can't get too worked up about it. I actually kind of prefer to manage the location of things myself, its two right clicks with LinkShellExtension.
