You're not going to get anywhere until you limit yourself to a
subset of "all operating systems". Unfortunately, file system
semantics do vary from operating system to operating system.

My preference would be for a clean linux-only design. I'd expect
even this design to have a number of incompatible physical representations
to occur during development.
