I don't think it's a file; beause I don't know anything about it. I
think it's a file name, which makes a difference.

What's wrong with this? `url-handler-mode' hasn't implemented
`file-notify-add-watch'. In such cases, the original implementation is
applied. And `file-notify-add-watch' is right in saying that this
"directory" doesn't exist, from its pov.

No problem. Write a file name handler which takes responsibility for all
files whose names start with "/efs", and here we are. It would still be
a handler which is called based on the file *name*.
