Document Management in WebDirect


I need to add some rudimentary document storage and management to my WebDirect application.  It appears that I cannot store documents by reference in a container field in WebDirect?  Has anyone figured out a workaround for this?  I really don't want to store the documents in my data file (I currently have App and Data FMP13 files).  Is there a downside to adding a 3rd database file purely for the storage of documents in container fields instead of storing them in a Windows file structure on the server and referencing them somehow. How would this affect the overall performance of the system?  Any feedback would be appreciated before I start coding.
