Why have a single nova-compute service manage this many nodes? Or even 1000?

Why not try to partition things a bit more reasonably like a normal cell 
where you might have ~200 nodes per compute service host (I think CERN 
keeps their cells to around 200 physical compute hosts for scaling)?

That way you can also leverage the compute service hashring / failover 
feature for HA?

I realize the locking stuff is not great, but at what point is it 
unreasonable to expect a single compute service to manage that many
