Yes, and they can be on different machines, different networks, with
different projects in them! That doesn't really address issues of
scalability---anything scales under these condition.

Scalability means that you have a lot of users over a lot of machines,
but they all see a consistent view of One Big Thing, and it continues
to perform well as more users are added.

Of course, separation into little projects and repositories is the
better way to do things. But someone who's been listening to some CM
gospel from the vendors of a product that implements the ``one big
repository for the world'' model might not see it that way, especially
if they have already committed dollars in that direction. Repeating
that gospel then justifies their decision.
