Wouldn't it be just like a property change, the name of a file
being just a meta-information?

Or instead of "rename", shouldn't you say "move"?

How about hard links? Do you plan to implement them one day?
In this case, shouldn't this be discussed at the same time as
renames/moves and would "atomic renames" still make sense?
