Allow MS sites to share a posts table

Description

MS should allow admins to set a constant in wp-config.php that looks for all post objects to be in the main posts table. When that constant is true, one could distinguish sites by a postmeta value.

This would make activity-stream like stuff across sites much easier to do as well as allow network-wide custom post types.

This doesn't seem entirely viable. Content can be shared across sites through other methods, including feeds and with creative use of switch_to_blog(). Closing as wontfix as this has been open for 3 years with no feedback.
