This seems like a good opportunity for WP to partner with some large hosting 
companies that would offer a WP install + wp-cache + hardware that can 
handle "a load of up to X", giving WP a referral fee for the customer.

It would be much better to answer the question Podz exemplified with "If you 
go with our hosting partner, X, WordPress will handle your situation for Y 
amount of dollars per month."

Helping customers and making money at the same time.
