The more physical data that lives on a node the more intensive operations
are. Especially read based ops.

Even if your ring is balanced something like a failed repair could create a
data imbalance.

though range-scan + get would trigger read repairs. Also the 1.0 hinting
took steps to make hints stored on the coordinator and lessened the need
for anti entropy repair.
