This is largely because this is I think how it is done today, and it has
a lot of disadvantages. They also want to be able to account for
traffic on the same database. Think of a large web hosting environment
where you charged everyone (hundreds or thousands of users) by CPU and
I/O bandwidth used at all levels of a given transaction.

Let's put it this way. Enterprise databases can be memory pigs. It
isn't feasible to run hundreds or thousands of copies on each machine.
