But (IIUC what JEB means) that would not cover the use case of wanting to put e.g. a JPEG image on the USB to view it on a non-Sugar machine.

IMHO separating the meta-data from the file itself is a good idea. Having one database at the root of the stick is just too fragile. Better store meta data next to the file in question, like myimage.jpg and myimage.journalentry?
