It's a personal preference - my take on it as well as bitmap (graphics)
storage is always store them externally and store a link to them in the
database where you need it. There's a lot of bloat in MSWord files (and
graphics) which does nothing but take up disk space, you add more bloat by
putting it in a blob field for no real advantage. But if the number of files
is low and file size is small, then convenience may by a factor.
