I think here already 2 topics are mixed. 
1) Distributing between different G/L accounts. Related to pure Bookkeeping procedure.
2) Sharing and distribution between different Analytic Accounts. It is more for analytics purposes and related to Cost Centers paradigm. As G/L account can be the same in this case.

Goals of above points are different. So what is goal of current discussion?
