It does not at all, but I think it can be added.

Yeah, because I did that in, like, an afternoon. It's unfinished.
In any case, I think the current situation is a bit bad design-wise,
because the Mozilla running in a separate process and Nautilus' GNOME
VFS layer will always be competing with each other.
So for example, if you open a networked file with GNOME VFS and
figure out you need Mozilla to display it (because e.g. it's HTML),
you need to reconnect to the same site with Mozilla again. And you
cannot keep persistent connections to sites to optimize things either.
