Wouldn't that be a good reason to do the full keyspace?  Put the
keyservers, proxies, personal proxies and clients through a stress
test to see how they'll handle the situation.  A lab type beta is all
well and good, but a live real world test might give us better
information on just how robust the network is going to be under that
kind of stress.
