My application keeps a main document and a list of linked photos and
movies that go into the document. The linked files would require me to
keep around a "security scope" for the files. I've opted not to make
the intrusive changes (for now) that have little or no benefit to an
end user, and probably are in fact detrimental to usability.
Nevertheless, it's another use case.
