Probably the best solution IMHO. I dont see where it becomes
unmanageable. There might be a performance-issue, if the docs
are really large.

I dont see why this would be better then (a). You additionally
loose the capabilities of the ZODB (transaction, easy object
reference, versioning)
If you expect moderate change rates on the documents you probably
dont want to abandon the transaction feature.
