Well, for one, I don't think HFS+ is particularly POSIX-compliant, but even
if it is not, it is HFS+ in leopard that supports Directory Hard links. As
well, from what I've read, there's nothing in POSIX that forbids directory
hard links, they just aren't used much, because if you're not very careful,
bad things can happen with shocking speed.
