Subject Re: Advantages of building tree structure

I think flat is OK, its once you get up to the "millions" of documents it
may hurt, so you have to put that in perspective ;)

A heirarchy may be for classification in folders. Remember in JCR its easy
to move a resource around when you want to re-arrange it later on.
