What do you mean with "Files have a path - use it" ?
I imagine he means that files you're building and installing go in a location that won't differ from the deployed location on a foreign system. So whereas you'd previously have to make foreign libraries targeted for /usr/lib but which can't be installed there because your host's libraries already reside there - problematic if your tools expect those foreign libraries to be there when building other things which depend on those libraries - you can now give the tools a canonical path for each architecture and the host and foreign libraries won't conflict with each other.
