I'm just stating naming for convenience of discussion.  As you want;
"The solution to finding data in your homedir is at this moment unclear,
 what is very clear is that directory structures more then 1 level deep
 should be avoided for the general public, but not made impossible"

This conclusion is wrong;  just because you (and others) have not fully solved
the problem with searching does not mean that the old system of a hierarchy
is the only way left to go.
There is much more to explore.  (document relations,  keywords based relations
and probably stuff nobody thought of just yet).

Again; I'm not going to claim your solution is bad and should be abandoned, far
from it!
The basis you seem to hav taken, that a kio-home slave based URL is user
visible, and thus hierarchical per definition will IMO limit its (long term)

I'd like to be surprised on how user friendly v.s. powerfull you can make
the home:// listings...
