The Catalogue is a database referencing those files. There is normally absolutely no need for multiple Catalogues - just sometimes photographers use separate Catalogues for different commercial clients.

Some projects that I work on have data stored in Git repositories. So then the only option are sidecar files, having the edits stored in DNGs, or storing a database in each repository. Storing the edits in DNGs has the advantage that files can be moved and renamed without thinking twice. With sidecars or a database, renaming an image normally means that the reference breaks. The only exception that I'm aware of is Filmulator, recently featured on DPreview. It references images not by name but by a hash of their content. So you can rename them without breaking the database. However, it's still one centrally managed database.
