What's stopping these users from running a pruned node?  Not every node

Pruned nodes are not the default configuration, if it was the default
configuration then I think you would see far more users running a pruned
node.

But that would also substantially increase the burden on archive nodes.


Further discussion about disk space requirements should be taken to another
