Why would "updates" be any more reliable, especially when there is no
mechanism for data integrity across different DBs? I.E., you have no way to
know whether a barcode, itemnumber, biblionumber, etc. is already in use in
one of the other DBs, so you can't possibly know what it refers to. One DB
w/ multiple libraries (branches) is the only way to approach this.
