Hey Chris,

Not quite sure how this is an OS X question, seems more like "Arrays and Raids", but then you might hear from Herr Zelin and you're not ready for that. Hypothetical situations rarely exist in the real world: " with multiple FW800 ports"; like what? Mac or PC? Operating system? These are real world facts necessary in answering your questions. If you want a response, we need to know this.
Regardless, a direct connection, as you've noted, is your best bet (1 drive/1port). You're still restricted to the max transfer of FW800 (100MB/s), and unless you have some extra software (Shotput Pro for example), you won't be copying to more than one drive at a time.
It really comes down to what specific machine you're working with, the connections, and the drives/raids you copy from/to. "Lets say..." is theortical, and there's a tremendously practical reasoning at Creative Cow, FYI..
