SDE and organising Feature Classes & Feature Datsets

We are in the process of migrating to a SQL database with SDE.
I am new to SDE...
What I am trying to get my head around is how to "organise" all my feature classes from around the world in SDE (I've come from a file server environment).
Most (if not all) our feature classes don't require topological relationship, and therefore don't require a Feature Dataset.

So the question is, is it good practise to simply organise one big bin of feature classes in SDE and use a good naming convention to distinguish areas around the world where this data is associated to ?

I can then "sort" this data either as .lyr files, or as File geodatabases on the server for the users...
