Yes this is a disadvantage.  However, I plan to separate queries for where 
the information is from queries to retrieve the information.  Thus a lot
less information will have be migrated.

By this do you mean that everyone knows what content the hosts has?


I also looked at Pastry (the one truly being partly sponsored by 
Microsoft research) and what I have determined is that in order to be able 
to find information in log(N) all that needs to be done is 
  1) Force content (in my case simple pointers to where the information
       really is) to be on nodes with numerically close ids.
  2) Use some sort of clever routing to always guarantee that each 
       hop leads to a node with a numerically closer id.
