The question should not be whether or not it is technically feasable but 
whether it is even desirable from a usability standpoint. Hierarchical 
folders are hard to use and many of us on the ui team have long hoped for a 
way to escape the hierarchical file system and replace it with something 
more database like. 

the epiphany bookmark system fits the needs of most users. Most users don't 
work well with hierarchies and at most use one level, many don't use any 
level of hierarchy. The epiphany bookmark system takes advantage of this 
fact and allows users to put bookmarks into multiple toplevel "topics." 

Reverting to a proven failed design is silly imo.
