Hopefully, the system won't touch more history than is absolutely necessary, and it can be taught to only fetch from the home of the big disk the history it needs and doesn't have. That way, people will only download things that they actually need. Even if someone ends up with the complete history, 2GB/year is only 544 bps; so long as nobody has to wait for 5 GB to download at once, it's fine.
