If a DOC is "just a bunch of NAND chips" then maybe YAFFS will work with DOC. 
 I'd have to look at the DOC geometry to be able to tell. Right now YAFFS 
wants its flash to be in pages of 512+16 with eraseable blocks being 32 
pages. Nothing that can't be adjusted with a sledge hammer.

There are pros and cons to both YAFFS and JFFS2, that's why both exist.
