I almost always end up putting the text directly under the headline, and
then doing a subtree export. As John notes, though, if you've got a
particularly complex document it might feel cleaned to put it in a
separate file. On the other hand, I suspect there's nothing you can do
with a separate file that you can't do with subtree properties/export

there's much difference -- just the matter of an extra RET if you are
following a link to a separate file.
