So my question is: is there any reason that LibreOffice under Windows
not install to \LibreOffice\?

Not really. AFAIK it is just a legacy setting. Default install
location can be changed either from installer UI, or by the
INSTALLLOCATION property from the msiexec's command line. All
settings, registry keys etc. will accommodate automatically.

Migration of extensions is a different issue, I'm not an expert of that.

So in theory it would not be a problem changing this (for the Windows OS
only) to default to an un-numbered folder.

If  \LibreOffice\ is the default folder, there is no need for extension
migration at all. They are already where the program expects them, just like
the User extensions.

Enhancement request added to Bugzilla

Best regards,
