As I understand what is being proposed, the node could only be
responsible for a single token, and presumably would perform very well
indeed when reading or writing that token. I don't see why you would
need to avoid placing a single token's worth of data on a node, or why
it would become a single point of failure if you did.. is there
something I'm missing.. ?
