This was already covered on this forum.

For a few hundred tables

1. It probably does not hurt

2. It is still a very bad idea. Tables are supposed to be thought of by human people, an no one can grasp in his head such an amount of stuff. You'll probably never code a function with 500 arguments, or a class with 600 fields.

3. What are your performance problems? I am not a MySQL expert, but usually, performance can be enhanced thru careful indexing.
