Except that under my definitions, there is no such thing as a "farm 
directory". There are just fields which together form a farm. One of 
those fields is special, in that the code lives there - the home field.

The fact that the URL is unique is important, because if it is not, 
then why use a farm? If an admin wants to segregate pages without 
creating a new URL, they should be using groups.
