Is there a semantic reason for having this many subdomains?
in present I can see many sites that make use of many subdomains for a 
not logic reason;
for restrictive smart surfing this can be a very good feature - just 
block a subdomain, to prevent stupid javascripts or css files to be 
downloaded ;-)
using scripts from foreign sites that are only used on client side is 
the worst, you can do;

if these represent sites of individuals than it is a good idea to have 
each one his own subdomain for the complete individual's website;
