The path instability comes from the fact that the index of a SNS is
assigned dynamically. Image you have 3 SNS /content/foobar and the
second one is removed. The third, which had the path
/content/foobar[3] before, now gets the path /content/foobar[2] as the
result of a change outside of that node. If you store paths somewhere
else, this quickly becomes annoying.

Try to find a meaningful name for each node instead of the generic
name "contractTest", for example based on the title of the contract.
That also makes exploring the repository much simpler for developers
or even users, if you have some kind of 1:1 mapping to the UI.

If there is no obvious name, a good "default" is to use dates (because
most content has at least one date assigned) and order stuff in nested
folders, such as "2009/01/09".
