Store metadata along thumbnailed icons, somewhere in $HOME ?
You other concerns are still painstakingly valid, though.

Maybe the solution is just to ask for another block allocation scheme in
ext3/reiserfs, where 1st block of each file are grouped per-directory ?
Doesn't break anything, fully back-and-forward compatible, works with
all file-utilities, no locking matter, and waay more sniffing-friendly.
And given a clever readahead setting, as fast as any metadata-in-a file

Talk is cheap :)
