Ingesting data into subfolders

When you do PST Migration with Enterprise Vault or any of the third party products out there, one question that I always ask is:
 
Where do you want the data to end up?
 
What I mean by this is:
 
- do you want shortcuts in the mailbox or not? 
- If you do want shortcuts do you want the shortcuts in a particular subfolder (and then subfolders underneath that) eg 'PST Migrations'?
- Do you want the shortcuts merged into a structure, or separate folders per PST file? 
 
This of course is a bit of a trick question, as there really is no correct answer.  What is chosen depends on the business needs and the types of user that are involved.  It is something that is often overlooked though, but to my mind it is pretty important when you think about performing PST Migrations.
