If we didn't have a text entry for the location dialog there wouldn't be
a problem at all. A desktop can work fine with using things like path
bars in browser mode, spatial mode, the entry-less fileselector, connect
to server (which is what you describe above) etc.

However, people demand a text-entry for filenames, that is just a fact
of life we can't get away from.
