I am trying to get a handle on this issue. Can you post an example or 
link of WinFS XML(?) or triples? I have googled around but only find 
blog entries with no examples. Specifically, what does a 'folder' within 
a 'folder' look like? Is a page the end, or in other words is it the 

For me, it is easier to represent it as a light hierarchy and pull in 
extra metadata/content when needed. I keep minimal metadata in the 
hierarchy and then more metadata/content for each node is kept in a 
separate file. The extra metadata further references the content 
assigned in a region element -- so a page is basically a 'folder' of 
content pieces (content assigned at the folder level cascades down to 
the pages in that folder). For example here is the hierarchical 

<site xmlns="http://livestoryboard.com/schemas/lsb"; generate="1" 
   id="demo_root" css="default.css" xsl="default" name="DEMO" 
   <page generate="1" id="site_ind" label="Welcome" name="Welcome.html"/>
   <folder generate="1" label="Destinations" id="f1034364271" onnav="1"
     name="Destinations" index_page="p1958461133">
     <page generate="1" id="p1958461133" label="Introduction to 
Destinations" name="destinations.html"/>
     <folder generate="1" label="Sailing" id="f611591524" onnav="1" 
name="Sailing" index_page="p1211385515">
       <page generate="1" id="p1211385515" label="Introduction to 
Sailing" name="sailing.html"/>
   <topic label="content_root" id="t339321861" xsl="topics" 
     <content label="homepromo" id="c682201793" name="tester.html"/>
     <content label="placeholder" id="c780459541" name="placeholder.html"/>
     <content label="right" id="c807589041" name="c807589041.html"/>
     <topic id="t235257654" label="Test Topic" name="TestTopic" generate="1"
       onnav="1" xsl="topics">
       <content id="c408766032" label="Article 1" name="Article1.html"
         generate="1" onnav="1"/>

And here is extra metadata from a single page above (named p1958461133.xml):
