You raise a good point: "de-growth"
Assuming linear (or exponential) growth without sympathetic
contraction at some time in the future would make our future selves
look back and smile at the youthful exuberance.
The pseudo-laws you mention (Moore's etc) do not cater for contraction
and, you're right, scaling UP plans should also wisely make provision
for scaling DOWN, for when the need arises.

I just had a look your existing Size N testnet code
and i'll set up a node over the weekend and post its address in that
PR's conversation. Do you or anyone else already have a node running?
