On Android 3 tablets and Android 4 phones it uses the MTD protocol to transfer files to and from embedded devices. So their devices are no longer dependent on having file systems that are compatible with non-Linux systems.

If you want to fake a filesystem, you'll have to fake the USB hardware controlers below it first. And that's certainly trickyer.
MTP and iTunes allow concurrent access by the host and the guest, and that's arguably the only good thing about these protocols.

MTD seems cleaner and if Linux support for MTD as a client didn't suck then I would be happy about it.
