BI runtime portal and federated approach


what should be considered when deciding whether to use a BI runtime portal as an enterprise wide portal?

i know the sap best practice is to use the federated approach with consumer and producer portals but are there licensing issues to opening a BI portal to non-BI users? or is it just hardware and user volume factors associated with hosting an enterprise wide portal on a bi instance java engine?

there is nothing, that i can see, lacking functionality wise in the BI runtime portal to prevent it connecting to other SAP systems or even external systems.
