When I transfer files to my mtp device (Sony NWZ S616F) using amarok they are stored in the root directory instead of in the MUSIC directory as it should be done.

Yes, people who have both the option of MTP and MSC have mentioned this but never got around to filing the bug for it. Thanks for reporting.
This bug is quite annoying since it makes my player unfillable while Amarok is running. Even worse, Amarok will automatically mount my player in MTP-mode and there is no way I can change back to normal-mode except plugging it out, closing Amarok and plugging it in again. If I could just choose not to automount my player in MTP-mode, everything would be fine again.
Alejandro, any news on this?

Still present in 2.2 RC1 (2.1.90).
How about providing an option where the user can give a pattern. According to that pattern, files would be transferred to the MTP-device (e.g. "MUSIC/%Interpret/%Album/%Filename"). Would be great to be able to fill my MTP-/UMS-device with music, using Amarok.
For me, even an option to not automount the device would suffice. Currently Amarok still must be closed to organize my files. If I start it, it will automount the device again (no matter if it's already mounted as an UMS-device).
If it would be of any help, I could send my device to someone (prefferably someone from Germany) and provide the means to sending it back again.
I can't reproduce this with my Sansa Clip on Amarok 2.2-git, assuming this is solved now in 2.2.1
This is not solved in 2.2.1 for me. The files continue to be stored in the root folder. The device is a Sony NWZ-S616F.
It seems that it's a bug in libmtp that is causing the problem for me. I reported the bug upstream but didn't get any response yet. Here's the link for the upstream bug:
This may be fixed with the cvs version of libmtp, as you can see in the bug report I have linked in my previous comment. However, I wasn't able to test Amarok with this version. I guess you have to rebuild amarok to do so. With Rhythmbox it stored the files in the folder named "music" in the device. I think I'll have to wait for a new release o libmtp to try this with Amarok.
It was a bug in libmtp that caused this problem for me. It's fixed in libmtp-1.0.2. Now the files I copy to my device are correctly placed in the MUSIC folder.
Yeah, right now the files get stored inside the MUSIC-folder but still, there are no (sub-)folders created for albums and artists. Well, I guess this has to go into a separate bug report (better: wish).
