I think that is exactly what I meant previously by "document security
scoped URLs": as long as the user ever opened the "main URL" manually
and you "security-scoped" the "side-by-side" files, your application
can read them as well the next time (but not directly on their own, as
I highly suspect).

How so? The users would not know about what is going on under the
hood: they would simply open the "main" document, as before. So how
would that affect usability?

(I mean, you *are* aware that Apple offers an API for exactly that
use-case, where you need to also read those "side-by-side" files of a
given document? Oh and yes: Probably "runs on Lion and above only")

Cheers, Oliver
