Well, it offers some advantages.  Some features don't work between
multiple databases, like subtree rename and (yuck) aliases.  Also it
can be simpler and less work to administer and tune one database than
several.  Though instead it can be more work for slapd, e.g. index
data both suffixes get joined together, indexing can give more false
positives which will have to be eliminated by checking the filter.
