Maildir is not that much better than mbox. Sure, it eliminates most of
its worse flaws, but it brings flaws of its own, like trashing the inode
and dentries caches, requiring extra disk reads and cache due to partial
file ends, or causing much more seeking (granted, this one is becoming
less of an issue with non-mechanical storage).

The filesystem is really the least common factor of database systems
(no, I did not mix LCM and GCD). There is a reason people designed more
advanced and optimized formats on top of it.
