Of course they are viable. Consider two movies, The_Hustler and Cool_Hand_Luke. Now I can't get to IMDB, so I am going to make a wild guess that that the former came out in 1962 and the latter in 1967. Furthermore, I'm making the rediculous assertion that TH was directed by Stanley Kubrick and the latter by George Lucas.
We have 10 partitions, /data[0-9]. Consider the following:
/movies/year/1962/The_Hustler -> /data0/The_Hustler
/movies/year/1967/Cool_Hand_Luke -> /data1/Cool_Hand_Luke
/movies/year/1969/2001 -> /data4/2001
/movies/year/1977/Star_Wars -> /data3/Star_Wars
/movies/director/George Lucas/Cool_Hand_Luke -> /data1/Cool_Hand_Luke
/movies/director/George Lucas/Star_Wars -> /data3/Star_Wars
/movies/director/Stanley_Kubrick/2001 -> /data4/2001
/movies/director/Stanley_Kubrick/The_Hustler -> /data0/The_Hustler
/movies/actor/George_C_Scott/The_Hustler -> /data0/The_Hustler
/movies/actor/Paul_Newman/The_Hustler -> /data0/The_Hustler
/movies/actor/Paul_Newman/Cool_Hand_Luke -> /data1/Cool_Hand_Luke
/movies/actor/Darth_H_Gates_III/Star_Wars -> /data3/Star_Wars
For each movie, you could build a MetaFile you can generate the symbolic links from. The_Hustler.txt might have
Actor: Paul Newman
I probably should have thrown Dr. Strangelove in there too. But you get the idea.
You could build a Poor Man's Dedup this way too.
