Great. (Just for reference: This was part of the suggestions of the rest 
of my post.) I think that would be helpful.

However, depending on how large the document and how many sub-documents 
there are, it might still be asking too much that the user should scroll 
through all those documents. So, some kind of comprehensive reporting 
could still be helpful.
