There are no issues. If you are REALLY looking at load then use ZEO
(Zope Enterprize Objects) as plugin for load distribution/balancing.
It is painless approach.
Now it is getting into specifics.

You are looking for a truly extensible system. zope is an OO web
application server.
This may be a good start for a thought process on what is possible.

If you mean a programmer, designer, and database administrator roles.
That is not an issue at  all as one can provide access to each of
these roles interacting with the site as per requirements (what is
ugly to the designer may be sweet to the programmer). This is again a
