SOA Suite EM create partition

In Oracle SOA Suite 10g, or more specific BPEL 10g, one could group functionality in domains. This feature has been away in the early versions of SOA Suite 11g. They have returned in more recent version and can be used for all SCA composites (instead of BPEL only). Nowadays these 10g domains are called partitions.

    What are the pros and cons of adding partitions? Is it merely cosmetic in EM?

    It is more than cosmetic. For example as a developer I could be working on a someProcessBPEL in a separate partition and the things I try wouldn’t affect others.
    It could also be used to separate logic domains over partitions.
    There are some settings that are per partition.
