read/write requests go to the file, dir-lookups to the directory? At
least that's a reasonable way to define the "union" of the nodes. I'm
not sure that it is a reasonable for users, though...

If you think this way, you never get a "collision" between nodes until
more than one node supports read/write. One could pervert it even more
if one node is a read-only file and the other a write-only file...
