It means that as these networks grow, we will need to increase the  
number of connections per node, just as Chord and other DHTs do.  The  
difference is that we aren't (currently) doing this automatically  
because we don't want to have to calculate the size of the network on  
the fly, so we just chose a high enough number that will suffice for  
the time being.
