home directive on RHS and without NFS

Hi there,

I am trying to create symlinks in each users home directory.

Intuitively, having read the documentation and noted the home directive, 
I started with;

   home/Desktop/Documents -> home/Documents

where /home/*/Documents and /home/*/Desktop are directories.
For one thing, we won't be using NFS and I am wondering, having read the 
documentation, if the home directive can be expected to work at all 
without defined homeservers and mountpoints? Or can I define 'fake' 
variables for these and 'get away with it'?

For another thing, can I expect home to work on the RHS at all?

Then I thought "I know, I'll specify the RHS as a relative link!" like 

   home/Desktop/Documents -> ../Documents

since relative to where I specify the location of the symlink, the 
Documents directory is one level up
The only thing that works is;

   /home/steve.wray/Desktop/Documents -> ../Documents
Any suggestions?
