Devin, it's not clear from your article if the perspective is isolated to metadata on the front-end client (the PowerPivot) or if it is somehow interacting with the perspectives in the cube UDM itself.  Can you clarify, please?  I'm also wondering how one user's classification of what constitutes their version of perspectives is shared with other corporate users?  Thanks in advance, Scott.

Perspectives here are independent from those in the UDM cube so it is like you said isolated to metadata on the front-end. 

Your second question is something that you have to be careful with in PowerPivot.  PowerPivot is marketed as and is an end user tool which in my book means you can forget about having any standards as far as how perspectives are classified.  The only exception to that is when SharePoint is integrated.  With SharePoint you can deploy out the PowerPivot workbook once and everyone work off that workbook. 

Other soltions to the last question would be to put it in a traditional UDM model or the new BISM model as well.  Hope that answers your questions!
