Hi Lex,

It's really up to you how you split your databases if at all.  I 
personally have mine broken down into databases such as:

Bus stops,
train stations
tube stations
taxi ranks
bank machines
post codes
wifi hot spots
intersections
OSM

and so forth.  That's just me though!

Good luck...

   Monty
