This means that the execution of a task doesn't need to be linked to a 
single resource offer, but they can be aggregated?

Also, it seems to me this would break down if there were two frameworks 
both which required 20GB of RAM. Let's say each of them grabs 16 x 1GB 
offers. At this point all 32GB of one node has been committed, and there 
is deadlock.

Conversely, ISTM that a 20GB minimum offer size would lead to big 
wastage in the case where frameworks only made 1GB allocations. After 
13GB of RAM had been used (19GB free), no further offers would be made.
