I tried to sum up some of the reasons to use separate workspaces.


Which means that I would not recommend the use of multiple

I think it is important that Access Control should not be addressed
by separating content out into workspaces.
(I think I am going to update the wiki in regards to that, thanks
for the input)

Furthermore I believe that Access Control has to be taken care of by the
repository, not by the presentation or application layer.

Please let me know if that makes sense for you.
