I'm not against but it would require a small adjustment to
NotDirectoryException's spec and also a consideration of which APIs that
might optionally specify it - for example the create* methods might
specify it as an optional specific exception for the case where you try
to create a file, directory, sym link, etc. and the parent path does not
resolve to a directory.
