Oh sorry... let me rephrase a bit.  No need, whatsoever to fudge the catalogs by domain, that's actually part of the domain access modules.  You have the ability to "show on all domains" or pick specific domains to show each node on.  So it should be extremely easy and straightforward to manage that bit.  I think we had set up separate payment processors for each domain, as well (this may have been a custom module, IIRC), so that piece is doable as well.

The one stumbling block would seem to be payment, which I don't think can be overridden by product, and possibly shipping, which I think cannot either other than as flat-rate groupings.

>>> I'm trying to remember, exactly :)  The one we'd done was actually the latter case you describe.  It was for a Jewelry company, based out of Halifax, NS, Canada with an online presence in Canada, US, Australia and a few other countries.  We built the system, off of a single install so that each product could display in a single country, or all countries.  I believe that the SKU was shared as well.  I don't think we'd used the Ubercart Domain Access module, but it sounds like just the ticket, as it will label a purchase of any SKU with the appropriate domain it was purchased under.  So.. I'm guessing the only custom-ish thing you may need to do is build an admin view to show reports per country, if that isn't a part of said module.
>>> So, long and short - if Widget was set as SKU 001 and was configured to be shown in US, Canada but NOT Mexico (let's say), it will appear on the Canadian and US domains, but would not show up as part of the Mexican storefront.  If you purchased from either US/Can, it will come through with the single SKU, marked somewhere in the system with that country.
