Life on the edge!

At first, Tiki is bit slower, because it is building its cache in templates_c

You are correct. Each Tiki needs its database.
If someone wants to write it, sure, why not? But I don't have a feeling this is going to happen. I don't think any developer is going to have the need/desire/itch to change this because most hosts offer several databases and it's cleaner for backups, etc.
