Bottom line I think there are some fundamental things that must be rearranged at delicious, otherwise there will be
  • a) a big competitor (Google? Yahoo? Microsoft?) coming up or
  • b) people will spread to different bookmark services that concentrate on certain clusters.
Probably some meta-sites will arise where you can have an overview over all the different sites I think this problems will arise for every bigger tagsystem. I hope that people will not sniff at tagging systems thinking that they don't perform well enough..

I think just one fastblogit domain, should it grow explosively like del.icio.us did,  would start to crawl very slowly. 

But then many fastblogit domains networked together ... ... that may scale very nicely .

Distribution, may solve some of the problem, but during an election or something like Katrina one will dominate. We really need at a point where the software is ready for release do a stress test and monitor the Db statistics & see why it hangs occasionally. Maybe get the ISP to help.
