Google "The first Google-influenced Motorola phones will start to appear in the second half of 2013, Wicks said, and if you like smaller form-factor devices or stock Android, you're going to be excited." This is exactly what the market needs, to be honest. Stock Android phones straight from Google that aren't Nexus devices. Nexus devices are nice, but are available in a limited set of countries only, and the Nexus 4 is continuously out of stock. Hopefully Motorola will do a better job on the availability front.

Your assessment is correct to my awareness, that's the big differentiator between MTP and the older USB Mass Storage protocol which was predicated on direct block-level access.

Unfortunately, my xperia mini pro with cyanogenmod 10.1 and MTP support doesn't supported on Linux, only windows. Try it several time, with no avail. So, my take is, you can only use MTP with windows OS. CMIIW.

I have the same phone, but running cyanogenmod 10 (from freeXperia). I managed to get it working under linux by using go-mtpfs. One caveat though: if the screen is locked at connection time, no MTP device will appear, with any method. Be sure you unlock the device before you connect it, even if it doesn't have to stay unlocked after that.

There is a really nice tutorial somewhere about how to do this and automate it through udev rules and fstab tweaks, but I couldn't find it again. So here's the go-mtpfs documentation so that you can check if it works at all already.

EDIT: This tutorial reminds me of something, so perhaps it was the one I used...
