You're right, iPhoto isn't design to manage "files" it's designed to manage "photos". For a majority of users, they want to manage the pictures and iPhoto does a great job for that. For a few users, they obsessively like to manage file structure. In that case, you'll want to look for something that better fits your needs.

I honestly don't get the file management obsession myself. You have a great piece of software that makes managing photos easy, not exactly sure why it matters what the file system is like since you never really have to bother with the files anyways.

I have never heard anyone give a good reason to need to manage the files themselves. You can easily access the image files by dragging the image right out of iPhoto (or even setup iphoto to use an external editor if that's the main concern). As for any other organization, you can easily do this with albums, tags, etc.
