No, I believe you have misunderstood the goals.  This has nothing to do 
with subdocuments.  But it's not clear to me where the misunderstanding 
has stemmed from, so I'm not sure how to clarify it for you.  If you 
could clarify what it is that led you to that conclusion, I might be 
able to explain it more clearly.
