In reply to: Why not just not support hard links? by walles
Parent article: More notes on reiser4

How about this?

rule 1: you can't create hard links to a file with streams
rule 2: you can't create streams in a file with more than one directory entry (link)

Problem solved. You get both features on a per-file basis. You just can't
use them both at the same time.

As streams become more and more popular, your proposed solution becomes more and more problematic. Besides, I think that in reiser4 all files have streams.
