Yes, that is true. The disadvantage of this approach is you are left 
with an urlspace that has all those Daisy ID's in it. The plugin does 
not use Diasy's URL mapping yet.

It will be done in the location map, the matchers becomes much simpler 

<match pattern="*.daisy.png">


The conversion of urls to the *.daisy.png pattern is handled by the plugin.

That's the advantage of using the daisy nav system. You have editing all 
in one place. We can address the URL space later if it becomes a problem.
