Sorry for the double post.
I think that the correct beahviour should be this:

1) the user plugs an external drive;
2) hal should change the block device ownership to the current console user, in order to allow it to edit the partitions, format the drive etc...
3) the drive gets mounted
4) nautilus should have a wrapper to "e2label" and something similar to write on vfat partitions.
