The advice is for separate different caches in different VIEWERS :)

Usin the same viewer there is no problem with different accounts: see you cache folde and you will see inside different folder for each account.

BTW there are some viewers that don't need that advice. For example Firestorm use her own cache folder, different of official viewer.

I'm not sure where you read that. The opposite is true. 

As Irene is suggesting, everything that is unique to an account is automatically separated by the viewer and placed in its own folder. In Windows you'll find a folder for each avatar in:

C:\Users\[windows_login_id]\AppData\Roaming\[viewer_name]\[user_name]

The new larger cache can be set to 10gb. By allowing everyone using the computer or all accounts on the computer to use the same cache one greatly reduces the amount of material that has to be downloaded... for all those using the computer. There is nothing in the cache that is unique to a user. So, they placed the main cache for geometery, textures, and sounds in LOCAL rather than ROAMING.
