Request a "Sort By Folder" filter option in XBMC video and music library view mode.
This would work kind of like a 'virtual file-mode' while still within in XBMC library mode views. It would display all items in the video/music library but it would sort them by the original folder structure.
This way if the end-user have theirs files and folder sorted just the way he/she want to view them but still like to use XBMC library mode then they could choose to use this "Sort By Folder" filter to display at least a virtual folder structure representation of the end-end true directory hierarchy.
For example, the end-user has their video folders and files sorted by category like:
\Videos\Documentaries\History Channel Stuff\
\Videos\Funny Clips\Worlds Funniest Home Videos\
\Videos\Kids Favorite Cartoons\Tom and Jerry\
\Videos\Kids Favorite Cartoons\Scooby Doo\
\Videos\My Home Movies\Dad's 50th Birthday\
\Videos\My Home Movies\Spain Holiday 2007\
...and something similar for the music library.
Good or bad idea?
