Why not just make it easier to switch between the two?  The mac finder
has a button on the top right of each finder window which essencially
switches between spatial and browser view.  Would it be possible to add
something like this to nautilus?  Have a button or toggle somewhere
which basically just switches from browser style to spatial style?  

There probably isn't a way to do this directly (IIRC spatial and browser
mode are completely different codebases), but there might be some sort
of magic that allows this or can fake it.  

Just a thought.  I have been using spatial for a while and still find
that there are times I prefer to use browser mode, and sometimes it's a
PITA to navigate down to the same location via the browser instead of
just being able to change modes.
