How exactly would look like?
For example if we have indexed a video with the TVShow Metadata.

I would still find the TVShow based on the Metadata (nie:title etc), but:
* The nie:url associated with it points to an "unknown" location and
the user is asked to mount the drive whichever it is ?
* We can tell the user to mount the drive named "XYZ" ?

Or would these results be invisible? So we won't even find the TvShow Resource?

In case we still get Resources like TvShow, MusicPiece, Publication
etc and can tell the user to just mount it for more information/file
This sounds like a great change.
