I haven't tried it but we are inexorably headed for the same sort of
problem for different reasons.

I suspect the erlang cookie notion will disappear.
One enterprise, one cookie.
Otherwise you throw away too many useful interactions.

Question is whether the hidden node construct is flexible to allow you
to divide a single-cookie system acceptably. Mnesia may be a problem -
AFAIK you need a single schema for all nodes, although replication can
be customized per table.

This might help, from the list Fri, 20 Apr 2001:

But I would love to hear from other regarding hidden nodes, etc.
