Yes, everything in gnome, since everything uses gnome-vfs.

This requires hal to know about those volumes, which it currently
doesn't. My feeling is that hal is not the right place to store
information about iso files on the file system. 

Gnome already allows you to browse ISO images with file-roller, it
just does not look exactly the same as opening a hard disk partition.
But this should be changed in Gnome itself if desired. Maybe you can
discuss that with the Gnome upstream nautilus developers?
