It's the same MSC revert-to-default that the Sony S630/730 series players also have. Sony doesn't officially advertise this fact, but in truth the S630/730 series work perfectly on Mac and Linux machines under MSC mode, and in fact, you can even get it to work that way with Windows as follows:

Go to the device manager and change the way the device is recognized, i.e. change which drivers it uses to the default Windows UMS (Plug & Play) ones. Nothing much to it. Remove the MTP driver for the Walkman device in the device manager and it'll automatically use the UMS one.

Even the S630 review here on ABiP got that wrong and claimed the device was MTP only, but users commented to the contrary (I was one of them, until Schipol Airport security broke my S639's screen...):
