The only thing I'm aware of is the "configuring swift" section of that 
doc you already found:

The first decision you have to make is whether to use single tenant (all 
images stored in an account "owned" by glance) or multi-tenant (the data 
for an image owned by tenant T is stored in T's account in swift).

There are pros and cons to each; you may want to add [ops] to your 
subject and see if other operators can give you some advice.  They may 
also know of some other helpful documentation.
