I think you are wrong. FreeBSD has leaf file systems. It least that it currectly the case with
OS X (based on older [Free]BSD [VFS]). Apple had a sample stackable fs - webdavfs, but they
currently do not support stackable file systems. Look through darwin-development mailing list
Usually, OS X installations mean that you would be running HFS[+]. It's a very cool file system
that has interesting features, but it is implementament as leaf fs as well.
Check out relevant documentation. Apple advises that VFS interfaces are in transitional fase.
