The value delivered by MindManager can be enhanced if the software could provide multiple sheet in one file, just like MS-Excel (multiple sheets can be created and managed at the bottom of the Excel file). I have also found this feature in XMind too. 

I can see many possibilities of productivity enhancement through this feature.  

It is my request to the team to add this feature in future releases of MindManager.

I can see your point but please explain what productivity enhancements you expect.
Mindmanager files can become quite large so the map roll up function and the possibilty to make sets of related maps with the Send To function could be an alternative.

Presently, I need to create folders of related maps, which soon becomes massive and unmanageable. My projects can constitute more than 200 maps in ten categories. Sometimes, even more. Feature of multiple sheets in MindManager files would act like the folder, which can easily be managed. It would also allow me to share it easily and move to different files with speed. 

Presently, this feature is available in XMind. I have checked it with even fifty sheets in the file and the size has not gone more than 5 MB. The file never crashed. 

I am more comfortable with  MindManager (using it for more than 8 years) and would like to see this feature in it. I am sure other fans would also get the benefit out of it.

I think this would be a great idea, combined with the ability to create rollups and relationships between sheets. As Ary said though memory could be a issue and I'm not sure MindManager would handle effectively having 200 maps open at once. For that matter I wouldn't attempt to do that in Excel either.
