How would you define the format of a document collection ?

To open a CAS document the document itself and a type system
for the document is needed.

In the Cas Editor right now an Input Collection is a Corpus folder which 
contains xmi/xcas files
in one directory together with the project type system the files can be 
loaded by UIMA. Though
it has be criticized for not allowing sub directories for structuring 
its documents.
