Yes, I'm talking about not only cooperating cells, but where there's a
single architectural department which designs all of them. Then you
really can get a global and fully location independent filesystem (within
the larger organization -- i.e. an entity like Morgan Stanley).
Obviously for the public afs space where cells map to organizations, the
/afs/<cell> convention works much better.
