Thanks for the great primer!

If I may, I would like to add a few items from experience. Unlike older versions of Revit, Its not as necessary to have tons of different worksets. Its much easier to check things in and out on an object basis. Worksets are now used more for visiblity purposes (don't want to see the site accessories on the architectural plan, etc) or for ease of working with larger more memory intensive files. A good rule of thumb (thank you Phil Read) would be to use no more than 2 to 3 times the number of worksets as you have anticipated people working on the file (not including linked files or consultants). Its imperative to know how many people will be working on the model and have the worksets set up early. Finally- make sure you ALWAYS check what workset you are on before starting to make sure you are not accidentially putting walls on the ceiling workset.
