It's a clear violation of the isolation principle!

Nodes will be happy until they learn about network latency and then they
will stop using memory from TMALR(The Memory Allocator of Last Resort).
Already affected nodes will free it back to TMALR and a lot of memory will
be unused. To make the IT buyer happy, data structures will be made bigger
in next release. Everyone will think it's working until they notice
memory bandwidth is saturated (processes start using wheelbarrow to just
get a diod flashing). All this mess could be avoided if we start using
binarycoin.
