Hmmm... I assume that means Automator is gone, too...
If you take a look at the Apple driver code you will see that there are dozens of calls to iTunes in any given transfer operation. If someone wants to tackle re-engineering the Apple driver to use this approach, they're welcome to tackle it, but it's not something I'm going to do.
I believe what we're seeing is the first step of iTunes becoming fully sandboxed.
