Compatibility of stable/volatile

Dear debian-volatile,

The volatile mirror at volatile.debian.org appears to have a structure
that is compatible with the main debian mirrors.  If that appearance
is an accurate reflection of reality then the volatile/main/* tree
should be compatible with the main/* tree.  I use the term compatible
to mean that a local mirror could be composed of the main archive plus
the volatile increment and thus require a single entry in the client
machine's sources.list file.

Is that appearance accurate?  Can volatile be stored in the
same directory tree and accessed by clients transparently?  If so, is
it possible to merge the volatile/* folders into the main repository or
do they need to remain underneath volatile/ ?

Thanks for any info or suggestions,
