I like the idea of browsable desktop and devices in principle, because you directly open what you want from the menu. However I don't know how usable it is. You're going to integrate part of the functionality of the file manager in the menu. This could be a problem for network servers for example, which has to manage errors if the net is down and such.
As latency already is the BIG problem of main-menu, this is a very important point you make. I thought that IF there was to be file-manager it should really only be a file-_browser_.
I.e. a very basic file-browser, that could do _none_ of the fancy things that Nautilus does - perhaps based on code from the gtk-file-chooser?
The idea of integrating a file-browser is just too intriguing IMHO; it could speed up work so much. Because, talking about latency, Nautilus itself is not the quickest application to launch. At least on slow machines like mine.
