I reallly don't think we should define an "unofficial" path. Instead of unofficial it could be "user defined paths" or simply left off.

That's why I added the "Given <LDraw> is a 'library', meaning you could have multiples of those. " bit.

So it only follows that order within a self contained library.

This way you can use multiple libraries and custom files like e.g.:

<myMainLDrawFolder>
<unoff-202100326>\p
<unoff-202100326>\parts
<unoff-202100326>\models
<unoff-202100326>\Unofficial\p
<unoff-202100326>\Unofficial\parts
<lib-2003>\p
<lib-2003>\parts
<lib-2003>\models
<lib-2003>\Unofficial\p
<lib-2003>\Unofficial\parts

It doesn't matter if the unofficial zip doesn't have the model folder etc, it's just another library and a program should search within it using the given 5 folders (if they exist).

LDView already does this but only for a single Library.
As I understand it some others (LPub?) also use the, by LDView created, Unoffical p and parts folder (hence the request to standardize it).
LDCad is easily adjusted to add the models and Unoffical/* ones.
