About 1)  below, we have the same requirement. We would like to have 
certain domains use only certain disks, so we put certain domains on 
SSDs and certain domains on SATA drives, and maybe even keep certain 
domains in mem (or ramdisk) only.

Maybe I am missing something, but I think all the drives in 
storage.config go in to a common pool that gets divided in to volumes in 
volume.config, and then you can assign these volumes to domains in 
hosting.config, but there is no way to restrict a group of drives to a 
volume, and thus to a domain?

I know there are some interesting options in cache.config, but I think 
that won't allow me to pin objects for one domain in memory with a very 
short TTL, while other domains still get written to disk?

Thanks again,

slow) instead of smaller SAS disks (although fast).

smaller files (<  1 MB) on a SSD, midsize files on SAS disks (>  1 MB and<  10 MB)
and bigger files on SATA disks (>  10 MB). It helps to better manage the hit ratio on big
files which keeps the network busy for a longer time.
