My own guess is that most "worlds" won't be "worlds" in the mud sense.
I don't think this is really meant for trying to create a mud (or,
since it's graphical, MMORPG)-type environment. The "hosting"
capability is meant more for the equivalent of DMing a paper "module",
where you have a very limited number of players, a very limited
"world", and the server is only accessible at pre-arranged times.
Someone *could* try to use it as a server for an MMORPG, but I don't
think it's going to work well for that.
