This is a self-fulfilling prophecy;  I and others have tried to have
large address books... which doesn't work... so address books remain
"small".

I have a CardDAV/GroupDAV collection of ~21,000 contacts I'd love to
have access to via Evolutions WebDAV address book.  But anything more
than a thousand or so gets to be unbearably slow.
