Some better mechanism should be invented to relate documents stored in
the Document Root to whatever page a link to those documents. I never
used the Document Root after the attachment folders and the plugin was
introduced. An attachment folder has a natural link to the page it is
related to, so the need to create a link to it in the page is not
there. Stuff stored in Document Root may be related to any zim page,
and sooner or later one would like to reorganize Document Root for
better experience from the command line. That will break links all
over the place inside zim. Problem with zim is that it is not possible
to put it "on top" of an existing directory structure because zim used
to grab all .txt files for its own purpose.
