Process Instances Life-Cycle

I know that a process, by definition, has always an end state and that the workflow has to be completed in a limited time.
But if I would like to map exactly the workflow with a real-life entity life-cycle I would end the workflow only when that object is destroyed.
In my case the real life objects are documents and I would like that all the related process instances remain active as long as the documents exist in the application.
This implies that I will have a human task (or suggest me some other task) like "document published" that will never be claimed except when the document is deleted.
Do you see any drawback on this? Consider that document number will be huge, and so huge number of processes instances blocked in a task.

Thank you for the help
