Not quite: network (e.g. Ethernet) interfaces and SCSI/USB devices that 
don't fit a known class have their own namespaces, and despite being 
shown by e.g. lsof sockets don't have names at all (but information 
about them might be exposed in /proc). I think that Plan-9 tries to 
associate absolutely everything with a name, and working from memory the 
same /might/ apply to curiosities like Helios.
