Feature request from ihor-sviziev, posted on GitHub Jul 04, 2013
For now we have 3 variants configuration scope:
I think we need add new scope betwean website and store view - store_group.
we have one magento website with 2 stores(2 domains) + 2 mobile themes for them (+2 domains). So we created structure:
For design we have next structure:
For now we need configure for store 1 themes (Translations, skins, layout, etc.), so I need set theme value "store 1" for desktop store view and for mobile store view.
If we have store_group scope we should be change theme value at store_group scope only.

I guess this would require quite some refactoring as store groups are (AFAIK!) quite "Virtual" and not really existing in the code, but more a grouping in the backend.

I'd be curious to know how many installations are using device-specific themes.

This gives so much more options than just themes. I was search for this when i stumbled on this github issue.
How i would like to use it:
Default would be the default configuration for our own store. Than we would create a Website as a package on which we would define package specifick settings. Than we could create stores for other people and again cascade settings down to them for there own store, than they could even change additional settings regarding the store view.
That way we can have a multistore and have Websites as a category. So we could have 3 Website's all with there own settings, like Free package, Extra package and Special package and than people could get a own store with the specific settings.
So i am wondering of this feature request is discussed internally on the Magento side? Addtiionally maybe someone could give pointers to how to setup the above described scenario?
