I think I need to disagree.

It's true, Emacs developers can't be expected to document OS
But create a buffer and put any simple text in it.

C-x C-w little:test <return>

No error.  Data is 'technically' saved.  
It's not Emacs fault that it doesn't 'look' saved.  BUT!

M-x revert-buffer <return>

revert-buffer: Cannot revert nonexistent file f:/little:test

If this worked then I'd have to agree that there is nothing wrong.  But
since it doesn't I think you should either reject the original save
attempt or let me read the data back.

Personally, because the things I could do with this are so cool, I hope
you'll let me get the data back!  For example I would no longer need to
clutter documents with and explain -- LocalWords:
