For my music project, I put the parsed web pages and xml feeds into
one database, and the parsed mp3 id3 tags etc in another db. This
helps because while I want to rotate the web-crawl data over time, I
want to continue to accumulate resource metadata...

With them in separate dbs I can throw out the old crawl data but keep
the file metadata around.
