How is it different from maintaing docs sources in SVN? In this case we 
would have a location for the sources (SVN), a location for the staging 
docs (local directory or a staging server) and a location for the public 
docs (web).

The way I see it is:

Dev docs in daisy are equivalent to svn sources (i.e for the devs)

Forrest zone (or locally created docs) are equivalent to locally created 
docs from svn sources. These are for QA

Published site is no different and is fo rthe end user.
