The plugins that add additional VFS semantics (that are currently

lot of politics...).
I would even do s/should most definitely not/must not/

More filesystems in future may want to use these semantics. There are cases when one can't use Reiser4 to implement them, but instead, need to implement another file system with the same semantics.
