I'd clarify requirements *before* doing the hassle dealing with separate
databases. If you really have to deal with DB files on department level you're
doing something wrong in your deployment.

I'd recommend to research how to implement appropriate access control to
prevent that "something strange" in one sub-tree affects the stability of the
whole server.

Of course you can glue several DBs with 'subordinate' directive. But it's
unlikely that you really need it.
