SQL Server 2008 R2 - Departmental applications?

One of the new items coming with SQL Server 2008 R2 and Visual Studio 2010 is the Data-Tier Application. It is designed for (what are described as) departmental applications.

What a "deparmental" application is deserves some thought. Mostly it relates to the size of the application. What percentage of your databases (count of databases not their volume) would be under say 2GB? What about 10GB? The argument is that for most sites, it's a surprisingly high percentage. Even most sites I see at the Enterprise level have one or two very large databases and the rest are fairly small. Does that apply to your sites?
