I agree with you as long as we are talking about file selection dialogs. But not if you are talking about save dialogs, here it is already possible to create new folders. If you can create them you certainly should be able to rename them, e.g. if you make a typo.

If you can rename folders, why shouldn't you be able to rename files. E.g imagine you are downloading an image from the net, you name it house.jpg, then you find a similar image and want to give both images descriptive names. E.g. house-south-side.jpg and house-west-side.jpg or you may want to create a folder named house, and move the images into it. You shouldn't need to open Nautilus for this.

As for messing things up, opening Nautilus gives the user even more possibilities to mess things up.
