I find it exceedingly unlikely that a document whose identity and
intent is entirely unknown to me would land on my desktop. Even if it
did, I'd be very unlikely to do much with it other than to send it to
the 'ol bitbucket.
Point being that 9 times out of 10, you have *some* idea of what the
document is, and some notion of processing, and that should be the
starting point, not sniffing at the document.
