Another reason (at least what I was taught WAY back in the System/38 days...)

Keep data in it's own library and the other stuff in "it's" on library. That
way you just back up the data...
Example:
ACDATAP is the Accounting DATA Library - all PF's for AC are compiled here.
ACPROGP is the Accounting Program, etc. Library - all program, command and LF
objects are compiled here.
ACSRCEP is the Accounting Source File library - QRPGSRC, QRPGLESRC, QDDSSRC,
QCLSRC, QCMDSRC, etc. are located here.

This also entered into the restore procedure since the ACDATAP library would be
restored and ready for the ACPROGP library with LF's looking for PF's.

I KNOW that has changed with Joins, etc... :-)

Just my .02's worth :-)
