Yeah, keeping shards smaller allows cluster growth (to some degree)
w/o getting into shard splitting.
Until a single core can handle multiple shards though, this isn't too practical.

While I think we should eventually support this model, I don't think
we want to limit ourselves to it.
The idea is to also support the type of cluster architectures that
people have today.  And yes, I think that does cause complications :-)
