grants.gov applications as virtual documents

I saw this on the Alfresco roadmap.
There is a lot of interest in publishing and virtual document tools. We welcome people with publish experience to work with the powerful tools that are already integrated. The JSR-170 model of children nodes works well for creating virtual documents. The Freemarker templating language is powerful enough to manage assembling. Freemarker and PDFBox can handle a lot of the transformation and XML handling. Xforms can handle some of the data capture.
This fits in to how I was envisioning collaborative editing of U.S. federal grant applications from Grants.gov.

Are there any examples which suggest how to model this content?  Is a virtual document a Space or is it Content with children?

I'm sure I'll have more questions if I pursue this.  It may even generate some interesting requirements of Alfresco.
