Advanced multisite environments

I've also mentioned this before for older versions as wpmu.
Several people need the possibility to create multisite environments that are currently not possible without much coding. Important is the combination of subdir- and subdomain blogs.
For example: my personal requirement given by my boss
root/subdir/wp-dir - root of wordpress
root/ - first blog / main blog
root/blog2/ - second blog
root/blog2/blog3/blog4/ - third and fourth blog below the others
root/subdir2/subdir3/blog5/ another blog in an unrelated directory
Like: Company - products - product microsite
Or: Family - member - member's hobbies - hobby microsite
There should be two types of sub-blogs:
- microsites - dependant and admin over the main blog in a subdirectiory like the new super admin (practically "normal" pages but with different theme, preferences and/or blog title - media and users are the same as from the main blog)
- "real" sub-blogs - independant from the main blog (stand-alone) like the current state.
For a trouble-free use is it given that blogs check if every blog has parents or children. Children (subdirectories) submit their slug structure to its main blog/parent. Parents block this slugs so that is it impossible to create the same slug. If the blogs use the id ?=x the main blogs have to edit it to another like ?=3_x or ?=3x (3 is the blog id)
