I would create one XML file per catalog, using the current format, and
modify the export / import step to create / look for a 'catalogs.xml'
file which somehow points to the locations of the catalog(s) within the
site, an maps them to the separate XML files.  The import step would
need to provide BBB for profiles which did not create this new file,
defaulting to a mapping from 'catalog.xml' -> 'portal_catalog'.
