Would it be possible to use per-process namespaces (as in Plan9).

I think something equivalent can be implemented with translators.

Thus the filebrowser binding foobar.tar.gz to foobar won't affect
the find in an another window.

The find will not be affected, as it should not list hidden files (only if explicitely statet), AFAIK.

I think this could solve most of the problems, and make the application
in question make the decision about what it likes to do.

It doesn't solve the basic problem how to make legacy apps interact with the polytype interface.
