It's linked from the main page of the documentation: http://lv2plug.in/docs/index.php?title=Main_Page
That seems like the most appropriate place to me.

LRDF defines where the RDF files should be, /usr/share/ladspa

LADSPA+LRDF plugins to LV2 is easy.

I thought DSSI did define common paths, but perhaps not.
