I've seen so many times people screw up their files making non undoable changes inside a file selector.

I don't think it is a good reason. It is no difference with the file manager. Any users can screw up in file manager either.

Besides, it's contrary to the principles of the gnome hig: a selection dialog should not be able to influence things outside of its scope.

What is the difference with 'Create Folder'? Isn't it influence outside? or something that I don't understand?

Having a way to quickly open nautilus on the current directory

Not all users (include me) are using Nauitlus or file manager. When he creates a new file and somehow he wants to rename old file and use that old name for new file. It is wasting time to open and jump in file manager.

I know I have borked my system before using a terminal and forgetting where I was in the file hierarchy and deleting a file that I didn't mean to. No matter what the system, some of us can still screw it up.
