Default FTP path for imports confusing

Hey there,

We've had a couple instances in the past of clients being confused about whether they should leave the default / suggested 'folder path' when importing a WordPress install from another host. Since public_html/blog is pretty much never accurate, I think the default value should be removed.

This is especially true in the case of cPanel where most of the time the default path is either public_html or public_html/<domain> or often even has an FTP account created with the home path already set to the correct location and you don't need to specify any path at all.
