It's the unix semantics of readdir(); e.g. specified in Single Unix:

`` The type DIR, which is defined in the header <dirent.h>, represents
a directory stream, which is an ordered sequence of all the
directory entries in a particular directory. Directory entries
represent files; files may be removed from a directory or added to
a directory asynchronously to the operation of readdir(). ''

An ordered sequence does not include cycles.

*Who* says NFS has to be a *unix* like filesystem?
