There is one eeny teeny problem. The moment I save a file, the drive has no
idea of the size of the file to be received. So how should it know wether to
reserve a track or a sector?

But I must admit that reserving complete tracks makes sense when creating
images or formatting a disk/partition: the size is known on forehand and
thus can be acted on it. And I can free the sectors of the very last track
not needed at the end of the operation. I don't have to change anything to
my FS as a BAM-unit is a track.
