non-techie users, but even I find it pretty convenient.

Something like that has been done, for example on FreeSBIE livecd of FreeBSD (using devd(8) IIRC). But there's a major problem when devices get disconnected (i.e.: the device gets pulled from under the mounted filesystem). AFAIK, this problem was considered too complex to deal at this time because it involved re-architecting portions of VFS. It would be interesting to see if DFly can do it...
