That *is* the Unix filesystem model - a single-rooted unified filesystem.
When I run "make xconfig" in /usr/src/linux I typically see between five and
ten filesystem types to choose from.  Is Nautilus going to need
filesystem-specific code for all the different types of filesystems people
might want to browse?  What's so special about smb?
