Actually, unless I'm mistaken, I believe ETP uses this mechanism to support the notion of subtopics. So, for instance, if you could created the following structure:

    Main ETP page
        --> ETP News (subtopic)
        --> ETP FAQ (subtopic)

in the sitemap, the News and FAQ subtopics would actually be subdirectories under the Main ETP page, but all 3 would be instances of the ETP application.

So, I believe there is good precedence for this very thing.
