If you draw that line at population 500,000, there are a little over 1000 cities that qualify, probably meaning (rough guess) the addition of 700-800 links - less than 80KB.

In fact, that would be completely unacceptable.  I find myself battling my colleague engineers over growth amounts significantly smaller than that.
