    It is not a bad idea IMHO, but these hints are supposed to work best when a user is near
100% sure that the broker will be hammered by requests (without any expire queue) while retaining
in memory the whole `global-max-size` bytes...
    I've the impression that raising the requirements (5  times more!) for the common use
case to satisfy the uncommon ones could be to too restrictive, wdyt?
