document management in WPC



I understand that KM can be used for document management related tasks like check out, check in, versioning etc. I would like to know if it is a good practice to manage the documents corresponding to a site in the Site Content folder of WPC. I personally feel this way the user will be able to easily locate and manage documents corresponding to a site easily. But I am not sure as to what could be the disadvantage or probable features of KM that I would end up losing if I follow this approach? Will it have any performance impact? Pls advice.

Also I would like to know if there are images corresponding to a site/sub-site is Site Content folder of WPC the best place to store or should it be stored in KM?

If the documents are uploaded in Site Content folder how can we get the Edit locally context menu when the user browses to a particular folder in Site Content where the document is located? This is because currently I will have to select the 'Details' context menu available and then chose 'Edit locally' option from the 'Actions' menu to check out a file.
