Sorry, I don't quite understand your suggestion.  NT file security
cannot be used on FAT32 volumes, even if the OS is of the NT family
(Windows 2000, XP, etc.).  So, if you meant to use the NT file
security as the back-end of the abstraction you propose, that back-end
will be inoperable on FAT32 volumes, even for Windows XP.
