This is perfect then...

If you are scheduled to meet in a sim later in the week, then why worry 
if all the static objects take a day to download from that sim through 
archaic usenet means. You would already have all the object information 
needed for physics and to render in a local storage.

By the time everybody meets, there would be no lag to suddenly download 
all objects from a single host.

Times that by 10,000 people... just for scalability concerns.
