To undercut my own arguments elsewhere, I need to point out that
even though players in Camelot *can* have a minimum of 8 characters
per server and 224 game-wide, the vast majority spend 75%+ of their
time on a single character.  I don't have exact figures at my
fingertips, but in excess of 80% of accounts fit that profile.  In
practice, multiple characters per server is something most players
do not make much use of.
