SRM-MDM "MDM users"

In review the SRM-MDM sizing guide, I see a sizing parameter for the number of MDM users (used to calculate fixed memory).

The guide's definition of an MDM user:

This is the user who is maintained in the URL of the catalog. The available MDM users can be seen in the MDM Console. Only those users who have a role Catalog User assigned can access the SRM-MDM catalog.

This definition is confusing to me as I am unfamilar with MDM and the MDM console. We are creating a separate MDM instance specifically for SRM-MDM catalog. Does that mean we would only have 1 MDM user?

In the example fixed memory calculation in the guide, it says "all connections to the Catalog are created for the same MDM user. 50 Catalog users will access the catalog concurrently." In the example the number of MDM users is 1.

Does this mean that the 50 users will connect to MDM through the 1 MDM user?

Can someone please explain MDM users and in what cases there would be more than 1?
