Perhaps using custom Address lists / OAB's you could achieve this.

The article above relates to using Exchange 2007 for shared hosting and touches on GAL segmentation. Perhaps this may be relevant for you.

The msexchange article would do what you need I believe but its long-winded.

There does not appear to be a simple way I'm afraid.

It is quite alright to have multiple GALs in Exchange 2007.

It is possible.
You have to replace the default GAL with new ones.

Test it first in a lab, because you are making major changes to the operation of Exchange and the domain.

There is no change in this functionality in Exchange 2010.
