I fully agree. Versioning should only be used for managing restricted
changes of a smaller constrained entity, but not for something that
could change completely and especially for something that is a
container for other, larger subentities (such as user manuals etc.).

Speaking in file system analogy, the car model is probably something
like a folder, and you don't want to version the folder, rather its
files. JCR supports versioning of subtrees, but this should IMHO only
be used for fine-grained subtrees inside files, not for outer
