If you work simply like this then file management is totally a non-issue, sharing work is a matter of communication (as it should be), restored work won't be broken and you can concentrate on making pretty pictures however you see fit.Of course, if artists are given good tools, file management under a complex directory structure is still a non-issue, sharing work can be made even easier (hey... that communication you speak of? Much of it can be automated), restored work won't be broken (because, for example, you can ensure that anything that work depends on is restored at the same time), etc.
Its also much cheaper and efficient as you can wholly staff your team with income-generating artists instead of having to hire support staff, have artists devote time to data-entry or having to waste time (and possibly talent) on a diciplinary procedure for artists who take shortcuts.Having worked in studios that range in size between 3 and 800 people, all I can say is... good luck with that.
