I think it would be ok to have a mount flag which says I want POSIXy semantics when using POSIXy system calls like open/close/rename/link/symlink, and I am willing to lose the ability to access added intuitive but nevertheless non-POSIX behavior through those system calls.
From what I have seen of the VFS layer, it looked pretty tightly coupled to POSIXy semantics,
and not easy to shunt past to let the filesystem decide the semantics for itself, which sounds to me like a nice alternative to changing or replacing the VFS layer.
