Just playing devils advocate in one of those, "worse case scenarios".
If you're properly backing up your database you should NEVER lose anything but up to the last backup which should be less than 24 hours of data...

The benefits of a single membership database, single install from which to administer and install mods and such would outweigh the chance of a major disaster IMO...several sites out there work like this now but they don't use this particular mod (or if they do they don't admit it.)

In its current state this mod might not be ready for prime time but it's a really good start.
