It depends on what you're doing and who the likely users of the METS are.

The trouble with separate files, is that they inevitably get separated. 
The problem with everything-in-one-file is that it gets big an unwieldy 
to edit / validate / process.

Depending on how you're managing your files and what tool support you 
have / need, you make the best trade-off you can.
