Wasn't there an issue for workloads that span multiple nodes?

Say a 4 node system with 2 warehouses? Then each JVM will want 2 nodes,
instead of a single node, and strong preferred node stuff makes it
difficult to achieve this.

I forgot how we dealt with these cases, just something I worry about
when reading this.
