I'm basically with Henri here. I am fine with Commons being like the
high school lunch cafeteria that naturally subdivides itself into
groups. Just like it doesn't matter that the jocks (almost) never
mingle with the chess club, they are both able to use the same
facilities without problems. There is no reason to administratively
enforce a separation.

-0 to splitting into groupings, I'm fine with organizing the layout of
websites into groups that just cosmetic categories but I'm not going
to endorse anything that splits Commons developers.
