Because I wouldn't want application code touched for every user created 
or deleted... Every user will have a new db, and user creation should be 
automatable. Adding new model classes would imply restarts for every 
user added / deleted.

Exact same schema for every user. I think It's really the same level of 
abstraction. The app only uses one database per user. No info from 
databases of other users is needed.
