Yes, in my group we have a similar concept. The /grassdata/ directory
is on a shared network drive (NFS in our case).

In our projection based LOCATIONs, the MAPSET names are usually
- project names, or
- user surnames (= mapset owner, so they have their personal playground), or
- dataset name in case of larger datasets (MODIS or ECAD time series
with > 10,000 maps)

Works pretty well.

Similar here.
