There are about 5,000 nodes right now. Do you consider them all trusted? Do you think they won't be able to handle upwards of a 500gb chain?

It's very easy for a large number of 'trusted' people to run a large node. Sure people in 3rd world countries won't be able to but they aren't able to now. Nothing changes.
