If you find the definition let me know! I'm searching for years now...
BTW: is the TeX-file, the PDF-File or the printed sheet of paper the 
document? ;)

Correct me, if i'm wrong:
FUSE uses a local namespace, DVFS uses a global namespace with globally and 
locally interpretable addresses. FUSE tries to hide the semantics for 
non-local-file-access behind the semantics for local-access. 
DVFS tries to take differences between semantics into account.
