I don't use multisite for managing dev, staging and production
environments.  In my workflow, it would be *more* complicated to use this
method.  I put the entirety of Drupal core into version control and deploy
working spaces straight from version control.  This makes it much easier to
control exactly what and when code is pushed to production, and enable the
ability navigate through the history to find sources of bugs.

The only time I use multisite is for actual separate, yet integrated
websites.  The most common use for me are multiple websites that share
tables, like the user-related tables.
