IMHO, this will have to be a DBMS, not simply a filesystem. The underlying data
store (which for many reasons should be native XML) will require an enclosing
engine to:

    -- manage document versioning
    -- maintain orthogonal extensions of the same base, as for example raw data
and various interpretations of it
    -- identify various sources of documents with the standard transforms which
must be performed first in the pipeline of processing them
    -- identify various output forms with the standard transforms by which they
are rendered
    -- (most crucial of all) enable the definition of, and then implement, a
processing model which--by instance document, or by document class, or by user,
or user type, or user role, or by type of request--applies defined links,
transforms and other processing in a rational and appropriate order.
