I've got a newsgroup exchange saved from Tom Kyte around 1995/1996 suggesting

There was such a recommendation in the first edition of Guy Harrison's book, back there
in 1998. Harrison took the whole thing a bit further and suggested separate tablespaces
for small, medium, large, XL and XXL objects, thus separating objects by size, rather then functionally. This recommendation is still basically sound, except in the RAC environment, where you want related objects accessed from the same node and being in
the same tablespace, to minimize handling of tablespace headers.

And of course some were talking about this long before GH. But let's not consider the Usenet a source of good info, by all means.
