I don't see it growing to that degree - if sent by SXE as things  
stand, then quite possibly, but if it's handled by sending the  
whiteboard XML document itself, that would seem unlikely. And if I'm  
wrong, well, hey, 4G is 4G, so the damage is done.

I think that's a bridge to cross when we come to it.
