as arnaud pointed out a while ago, in reality file systems are a bit more
nuanced in their capabilities and interpretation than that. for example,
depending on whether a directory contains had-links or soft-links,
deletion semantics are different, and they even depend on the number of
hard-links before a file is actually deleted.

if we think that a file system analogy helps, then maybe we should at
least use distributed file systems and their decentralized authority and
control for our model.

cheers,
