Catalogs and session data change much faster than content. It makes

Also, as I understand it, you can get more benefits from the "regular
content" ZODB cache if you're not constantly moving tons of catalog
data through it, so there's a performance win
It seems like all of these potential advantages are available through
the use of multiple storages, but none of them really require
support for cross-storage references. On the other hand, it seems
clear that cross-storage references make the system as a whole
(software + people) less reliable.
Perhaps I misunderstand, but low-level cross-site references seem like
weakrefs. Maybe we'd be better off if they were explicit, higher-level
used and dereferenced intentionally where required.
Note: I have a proposal outstanding that would allow more flexible
caching strategies that make database partitioning strategies
independent from caching.
