The AO is not designed to be highly scaleable. Dunbar's number is 150 and large groups are toxic. Instead, the AO is designed to empower individuals and small groups, and make it easy to fork and administer one or several AOs. This increases the number of users capable of administering an AO, whereas a model that places scalability as first priority is designed to handle a large number of inept users on one platform provider's service. This runs contrary to the peer-to-peer and community educational functions of the AO.
