2 SD card slots and rootfs on internal SD card - maybe VFAT + fs images?

Not without an unreasonable amount of force :-)

Hmm, what I meant was to emulate the USB block device protocol. If you
accept that truly concurrent access (as in files written from either
side promptly showing up on the respective other side) is not possible,
you could stitch each high-level operation (create file, write to it,
erase file, etc.) together from the pattern of FAT and data accesses
the host has to perform.

Agreed that "real" network access has to be reasonably user-friendly
to be useful to most people - and that we're not there yet.
