I'm not sure what the prevailing wisdom on this is at this time, but for 
whatever it may be worth[less], my own small cluster I have set up with 
a separate host owner per system role (one for the file server, one for 
the auth server, and one used by both of my CPU servers).  I'm not 
currently using venti.
