Personally, I don't see how two DBs improves things.  In my experience, nodes 
are often "configuration" as well as "content".  Trying to draw that line 
somewhere is a mistake, IMHO.  You might draw the line where it makes sense 
for your sites, but not someone elses.

As you point out, the list is highly debatable.  I think it's undecidable.
