There's no performance difference in loading or queries. From the point of view of organizing my databases, I prefer to keep things
separate. I tend to put one large table per database, so that I can do my dump/restore at the database level, not at the table level. I'll
put fact/summary tables in other databases so that they can be dealt with as one or more groups. I also think that it's easier to manage
space and security at the database level rather than at the table/view level.
