There is a separate copy of the node in each workspace where it exists.

The solution against excessive disk usage (and for major performance
improvements) when handling separate copies of large nodes (ones with
large binary properties) is the data store feature that ensures that
only a single copy of any one binary value is kept in the repository.
Then your nodes would still be separate copies, but all their binary
properties would be shared.
