This is true.

Exactly, although, can't you easily configure the uploads folder to be in a
site specific location through the options tab in wordpress?

Looking at wpmu a bit more, it might make more sense to get a patch (or a
plugin, if that's possible) that can work with that setup instead. That way
you'd at least get the benefit of the site wide common DB tables as Boris
