I'm puzzled by this. I have never installed TL2005/Windows, but I did  
recently install TL2007 on a Windows machine to test some things. The  
(default) installation gave me c:\texmf-local (an empty "skeleton"  
directory structure) at the root, *not* within the texlive2007  
directory. Admittedly, I installed from the "inst" CD rather than the  
"live" DVD, and this was a few days before the release was actually  
declared final, but I'd be very surprised if this setup changed in  
those last couple of days.

In addition, I know that my basic instructions to a couple of  
complete newcomers, which were based on the assumption that texmf- 
local would be placed at the root, have worked fine for them.
