The benefit is that is the structure defined by the JSR-170 spec. So if
other tools/providers/vendors must access to your data it would be more
intuitive to see nt:resources and jcr:content that other random properties.
For example, if you want to use the WebDAV contribution you must follow the
standard, otherwise the DAV adaptor won't understand your content.
