KDE "PC users have volumes of information saved on their computers, most of it disconnected and disparate save for a basic directory system. The answer to connecting all the information into a local semantic Web of information is closer than you might think. Thanks to the open source NEPOMUK (Networked Environment for Personalized, Ontology-based Management of Unified Knowledge) effort, the Semantic Desktop isn't a dream; it's an emerging reality and will be here with the upcoming release of KDE 4 for the Linux desktop."

The only issue I could see in terms of a filesystem based meta system would be that it would make any such feature filesystem dependent and KDE prides itself in being system independent which is why you see abstractions of technology such as HAL. Otherwise this would seem a more robust way to go. There are pros and cons to having a less dictated software stack.
