No, I would even advise to work with subsites to create your navigation structure. Using subsites, it's very easy to group information that belongs in one place, and provides even easier use to display context-sensitive content in a content by query webpart.

It's also interesting to use for seo-purposes, because you can make site names descriptive for the content that resides in those sites.

  • Thanks Bas even i dont see any downside of it but at my work some people are against it.

  • ask them "why". Get to know why they see the downside from it. Convince them. say a pray and even convert them if needed ;)

No it's very common for WCM to use a lot of subsites
