Yup, except for the following two backdraws:

  - you force users to have two document trees, one for text files and
    one for non-text files.  Some might find that conveniant, some
  - you lose the feature of baing able to replace standard
    installation non-text files with your own by placing it in the
    local mason component root.

Anything I missed?
