I  call it a super set and sub set. Common way to design systems. Sometimes 
you can get a way with adding everything in one table, especially if you 
have two small sub sets. From a logical view you should split it out and 
9/10ths of the time your physical model will be split out too.

If all goes well I should have the design done for all three platforms by 
midnight tonight(CTZ). Barring no problems from paying clients, hockey and 
borderline sick baby.

I will post the schema to this list plus have links to it with a diagram.
