sharing is not an advantage usually, it is a NEED
sharing has , as everything, pro's and con's
it' s up to You to evaluate the balance

and it does not apply just to HFS, but to every <data collection>

for example ...
disk space savings
no need to synchronize copies of the <same> data
higher access time,
overhead for data integrity
additional hardware
bit more complex to manage
ReadOnly vs ReadWrite
When I tell somebody to RTFM or STFW I usually have the page open in another tab/window of my browser,
so that I am sure that the information requested can be reached with a very small effort
