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.
