SimpleTest uses prefixed tables, so that point is moot.

The number of patches which are likely to affect multisite installs
are very, very little, maybe 1/1000.

Again, SimpleTest - have you actually downloaded Drupal 7 and tried it out?

As to popular modules, when you find a 7.x version of Views and CCK,
please let me know. If you fancy porting some modules to 7.x early and
often to help test new APIs I'm sure maintainers of those modules will
welcome patches.
