Hi Simon,
Blender file is a container like 3dsmax file. If you want to load .blend
in osg directly it will be very complex and not suitable for a lot of
Anyway, if you really want it i would suggest to make a plugin that run
osg export in background mode and then load the result in osg.

Of course it depends of your usage, i use osgexport and it works very
well, do you have some problem with it ?
