Well really in this case it's about fixing the apps which don't attempt to 
mount before they try to index the files, or browse them, etc. They've all the 
information at hand to know if some file is on a removable drive or not and 
should use it accordingly (in particular Nepomuk should probably not consider 
them gone but temporarily unavailable, then unavailable once the corresponding 
disk is plugged).
