I'd hope things like attachment sizing scripts would move to client side
scripts.

There's also things like advanced vehicle scripts, I wrote an engine
script that did an approximate handling of torque and grip. It was
fairly math intensive and I never implemented it fully as I judged the
sim load to be too great. If I can move that client side and just send
it's output to the server side physics script driving the vehicle, then
not only does it become a feasible approach, it'd possibly be lighter on
the sim than some current vehicle scripts.
