That's great information...

Can you recommend any articles or white papers that outline the process and
properties of Revit rooms?

There is a good reason to have a room for each space type. For location , you need to classify each room. A room can be a cubicle, other room might be a corridor. Then you will have the lounge room and so on. That space data then can be manipulated with a report that will charge each group with the common areas they share by allocation. I'm not a revit user, but the approach is general. If you want to have group allocations you need to distribute the common areas and you achieve that by creating a room for each space you have in the floor level. Remember that then you can use that same data for other reports like occupancy density, or to budget a carpet replacement,, the more you have the better the data you'll get. But also its is harder to keep accurate. Just analyze what you need. I would like to see an article talking about Revit use for space management. I really need it!
