I've one: click on some link pointing to non-managed target, download
the target, auto-open $HOME/Downloads folder --> Result: nautilus shows
an error alert saying is unable to find
"/home/user/file://home/user/Downloads/" - and it's right :-)

Oh, non managed target means a file that you can't open with any of the
installed apps, so Ephy ask you if you want download it. Try with some
Mac .dmg file like this[1]

You can use bookmarks. And it works in Nautilus and Panel (but not in
file selector using gio backend).

Try this:
 * open smb://network/resource
 * Select Places->Add Bookmark (or Ctrl+D)
 * unmount the mount

The bookmark entry is still available in Nautilus and Panel Places
menus, and you can use it to remount the share.

IMHO this is the proper way to implement this feature, we just need to
     A. visually separate local folders and remote folders in both menus
     B. use the same icon ("network-server" or "folder-remote") in panel
        and file manager
     C. show bookmarked remote resources in file selector
     D. avoid to add bookmarks for stuff like computer://, fonts:// and
        similar, or duplicate them
