Maybe this is to model the cases that have several classifications. For 

D       is Document "Les travailleurs de la Mer" (of Victor Hugo)

F_hugo  is Folder   "Victor Hugo's books"

F_h     is Folder   "Authors whose name begins with a H"

F_guern is Folder   "Authors that lived in Guernesey"

F_sea   is Folder   "Books about the sea"

D      filed_under F_hugo

D      filed_under F_sea

F_hugo filed_under F_h

F_hugo filed_under F_guern

Therefore, the document D is filed_under 2 different folders, and the 
folder F_hugo is also filed_under 2 different folders.

But I believe one of the CubicWeb mentors will have a better answer.
