Pete,

I guess we are in violent agreement.  One comment below.

I am not suggesting a subclass of document.

We already categorize documents as "referenced" and "with attached document data". For hardcopy documents we would have a Document Object containing description attributes/elements that identify the source and properties of the hardcopy document.

I chose to call it a "Hardcopy Document Object" as opposed to a "Document Object with Associated Hardcopy Document Input Elements".  How the digital representation is stored and when exactly the document is scanned are, IMHO, implementation specific.
