I think the current system doesn't dilute the filesystem model at all,
as it's entirely client-side.

There's no way (currently) to make a copy of a floating target. If
you make a copy of HEAD, then your copy will no longer point to HEAD
as soon as someone starts committing. The main advantage of the
module system is that it allows one to pin one dimension (the path)
without being required to pin the other (the revision).
