Id be very interested in an answer to this. We run a large data warehouse and the amount of models talking to it is becoming to much. I have name spaced it under a Dw class which handles the connection to the DB and any other shared logic. But I wonder if there is a better way to handle such a large quantity of models without cluttering the app models..?
