typo3_src is a symlink to the core files and not a folder. You can only 
have one in one installation.

Most of the uploads folders (it has a lot of subfolders) is specific for 
extensions. These are folders created when installing an extension. 
Therefore is it possible only to have one uploads folder at root level. 
Of course it's possible to do it, if you want to recode both part of 
core and nearly every extensions.

Remember that the only content in fileadmin and uploads are images  and 
files. No other type of content are there.

I don't think this is possible

David's solution i a good one and working well. I have some multidomain 
installations and using this solutions on everyone of them.

For the rest, TYPO3 itself manages the multidomain perfect.

You should also look at DAM for managing images and files.
