As the collection will be mounted in local, not through the network, it's fine.

With a SQLite DB the restriction is to host DB file on a network file
system, as NFS, SMB, etc... where DB transactions and queries cannot
be done properly. It's a limitation of sqlite.


On a local file system, there is no problem.
