At Pixline we are going into the same way in our actual project, and  
after a lot of tries to build our system upon WP, we also switched to  
WPMU as the main codebase. I also think that WPMU is the way to go  
for the implementation you describe.

Actually we are working on a group of plugins, themes and widgets  
that will allow to use WPMU as a multisite CMS, with some features  
that actually have really few things blog-oriented. For example, one  
of our subproject is a sort of clone of the WP sidebar widget  
feature, but applied to the main loop; combined with a compatible  
theme, it will allow to build really complex layouts for the home  
page, with ease. (wp has a plugin system called canvas [1] that make  
something similar, but we need something different and WPMU based)

We'd love to release a public alpha of our codebase soon, around the  
half of April. I hope your needs will match our code ;-)
