Google Maps API key

Just wondering, when creating websites for clients, does the average developer use their own API key in the JavaScript for the maps? Or do they create separate profiles for a specific client?

Personally, I'd put each of the clients on their own account and API key. If you put too many one API you could easily tap over the request limit, plus I wouldn't want my API key to be left in code that somebody else could than later down the road see and or use.

Thanks a lot
