I am aware of that. I was merely dismissing the storage focus.

That said, it can be solved with heavy decompression/generation
stage.  (lossy, wavelets, radiosity, visibility optimization etc)
Distribute all newbie areas with fairly light compression then let
the heavy decompression go on over night (12 hours) or several

Or in an exclusive service: send out monthly CDs.

And then you have multi-layered DVD.

Most things are possible if one are willing.

(I hope that "modify space" comment in a previous thread is
suggesting that SWG is going to provide IRC/MOO like qualities :)
