Not sure if your idea is the best
I would not do this my self. As a user, you have many configuration settings stored in your /home/Tag_Scott/ directory, and you don't want windows apps writing over those.

Or why not a /windows/My_Documents directory?
You could also create a user "My_Documents", and there then would be a /home/My_Documents directory. You would have to go in and modify the permissions such that everyone could have full access user "My_Documents" directory.
Apologies, but even if it could be done, I have reservations about the viability of your idea of making /home equivalent to some windows directory.
There are good reasons to separate some directories
I think the quote below summarizes it quite well:

Please, what is wrong with the other suggestions given in this forum? ie Suggestions such as /home/Tag_Scott/My_Documents for each user being mapped to the fat32 c:\Documents and Settings\Tag_Scott\My_Directories ??
