It's complicated... I'd like to have read-only access. Is there another way to access the files like a directory, perhaps from a java module?

I mean from xquery ofcourse.

Is there a way to retrieve the actual path to the binary resources from within eXist? Or perhaps a pointer to the current data/fs directory?

no, and there will not be;

the 'fs' directory is internal, it can change without is 'by accident' browsable, but it is not meant to be accessed by something else than exist-db.

the question arrises... why do you think you need direct access?
