My opinion is not important. I'm just testing
that design and haven't experienced an issue
observable as a test case.

I'm trying to understand what you mean by that...
Of course the (re)source (meta)data could live
in rdbms's, triple stores, etc. The use of the word
``document'' is more in the sense of an RDF graph
and an RDF formula imaginable as being something
written on a separate and discrete sheet of paper.
Anyhow, Amen to your conclusion :)
