Probably, although I am not sure. Say, someone found an ancient
manuscript, which exists as a single copy at the moment, and included
excerpts of it in a DoT...

...Actually, if we accept a separate UMO - text (as Sergey proposes),
then every text from DoT automatically gets in the Repository and can
be referenced as such.
Don't let similarity of names fool you. Text in DoT is complex object.

Depends on object design. Read specs and decide how to make it. I believe the idea (to make just texts included in "Texts In" - this is my term, by the way (so that not to fool anybody), available for independent (from DoT) use) is a right one.

...Also, it can be referenced as DoT, number such and such (meaning
this particular text in the DoT), similarly to casual reference to a
scientific article included in a collection.
It can be mentioned. Maybe. Don't know if one can reference it in
database sense though.

I don't too. It is not my problem, OTOH. I am thinking how it ought be in order to work for declared purposes.
