I already told that. OSs who don't implement themselves userspace filesytems
will have to live without them.

What else could you want to do? Filesystem namespace is something that belongs to the
operative system level, and it's the operative system who has the power to fix that. Trying
to hide that fact by creating a standard that makes userspace filesystems anything but
transparent is not going to change that....
