The problem is really that Hans didn't start by understanding how the division of labor among kernel subsystems worked and why it was set up that way
He understood. He was trying to balance a grand vision with practicality. He has said he thinks his work should replace the VFS layer; i.e. he doesn't think it belongs in a normal filesystem driver. But he figured it would be easier to ship separately, and get included, as a loadable kernel module. I think Reiser4 would look a lot different if Hans Reiser owned the Linux kernel.
