Virtual HomeKit Homes for controlling layered permissions?

Virtual HomeKit Homes for controlling layered permissions?

As our HomeKit fingerprints grow, we inevitably end up with some devices that feel intrusive to give access to all home users (or advised because of the age of the children). I’m wondering about a setup that uses virtual houses to create separate access to some accessories. I read that two houses on the same LAN are supported (although they might actually interconnect via Siri, which is both cool and problematic). Has anyone made several HomeKit houses in one location considering this utility? If so, the next question is: Can HomeKit accessories / hubs be added in two houses at the same time?
