Well, IIUC the current lazy-consensus driven state, if nobody challenges 
it, is that we have only one content dir, and that raw files are 
identified by a "binary" or "raw" attribute in site.xml.

I don't yet have a clear view of how this will be implemented, but it 
seems that ATM going with your classification makes sense.

I think "process" is a very good name, as in fact the files there should 
be assumed to be processed, even if only by an identity transform.
