Good question and thanks for your reply.

We are launching a video-focused news and information site for a specific
market segment that where we'll have two main constituencies that are
synergistic. We plan to have syndicated columnists who we'd like to give
their own blogs and later we'd like the option to build a community for the
two constituencies using BuddyPress which requires WPMU. Finally we plan to
create profiles for the companies of one of our constituencies and are
exploring the use of the user profile to represent a company. 

I assume this makes our project goals align better with WPMU than with WP
but maybe there are better ways?  Thanks in advance for your help.
