Yes this is one solution, and a problem to that solution. We're looking
into what variations are possible on that, what other possibilities and
projects already exist, and there are quite a few. But I don't think
this discussion belongs to this list.

A couple weeks ago we started discussing it on the mailing-list (see the
archives[1], in French though), but it all depends on what environment
one considers, what services, etc.. For now it is on pause so we could
start from the user's point of view and not get lost in details. Once we
know what we're aiming for, in what environment, we'll come back to that
subject. If you're interested I'll be glad to discuss it with you on the
list[2] !

[1] we started here: http://lists.mehho.net/pipermail/mehho-users/ (in
French. starting with the thread "Mutualiser")
    then migrated the project's dedicated list:
http://lists.mehho.net/pipermail/evomuse-project/ and (in French again)
[2] http://lists.mehho.net/listinfo/evomuse-project (we can switch to
English no problem)
