Should we use one Azure Container Registry (ACR) for Non Production and Production?

A question that we have - should we have one Azure Container Registry (ACR) serving the non production (development) and production. At present in production we plan to have a different ACR to which the images will be imported from the development.

But the question is - what is the recommended way? If we treat ACR as an artifactory, then one is enough. After all, we have only one instance of Azure Artifacts (with several different feeds) where we push our nuget packages. Both nuget packages and docker images are build artifacts, so there is an argument that if we have just one nuget artifactory, why have multiple ACRs?
