Basically I mean the ability to have multiple seperate adminsrator and 
maintainer groups for the administration and totally independent 
administration. E.g. no namespace issues etc. --> an ISP/ASP usage szenario.

Leightweight multi-domain support means that the Kolab server accepts mails 
for several domains but actually it is administered by a single security 
domain. --> simple case in many corporations

So you want to drop it? What is the successor then?

Steffen is currently heavily working on the bootstrapping due to the 
multi-location support.
