Common Use-Case for Sharepoint document collaboration?

Question asked by apaxson on Apr 1, 2013
When I first setup and installed Alfresco and Share, I set it up to where admins are the only ones to create sites.  The reasoning was simple…. to prevent Site-sprawl.

But, I do want to make it easy for users to collaborate on documents.  So, it seems when a user "publishes" an Office document to work with someone else, I guess it creates a new site dedicated to that specific document.  Since they don't have site creation privileges, it fails.

The question becomes, administrating these sites created by end-users.  At some point, I could see us having hundreds or thousands of sites. 

So, my question to you is this:  Do you use this feature?  Am I making a mountain out of a mole hill?  In other words, are there any downsides to having this many sites for document collaboration?  What is your common use-case and scenario for this business case?
