We do this already, whereby mail is stored like, for user at domain.com, in
/some/path/domain.com/user. The paths are stored in a virtual user
database in PostgreSQL which Dovecot authenticates against. And yes,
/Maildir is redundant, unless you plan on storing any non-mail stuff in
the same user directories (e.g. web pages or something.)
