Let's solve these crucial protocol weaknesses

Here is some additional context on instruction limits that may help clarify things.

Reviewing the DTS thread shows that:

  1. DTS will have a maximum increase of another 2.5x to the current Update instruction limit (for a total of 50 billion instructions) at that point DTS will be at its current limit of 500 rounds and more fundamental changes to the protocol would be needed.
  2. DTS is not required for queries, however:

In another thread, we tried to address another aspect of the issue which is that queries are currently free. This leads to DDOS vulnerability and network cost asymmetry and lack of sustainability. The DeAI community has suggested enabling a fee option to queries in order to address those short comings.
